Let there be light!

You may recall my frustration with my camera lighting. I have a canon point and shoot and at this time in my life I'm not ready to upgrade to something fancier. I'd like however to get some better quality photos from it and I think it comes down to my lighting. I shoot a ton indoors and my home is not flooded with natural light. So, today I did a quick internet search and came across some sites on how to make an inexpensive light box. I particularly like this one. I'm going to adapt it a bit in terms of size so that I can show the craft items I make. I'm going to head out to the hardware store and see what I can scrounge up in the way of pvc piping. I think I actually already have a flood light in the garage. I'm thinking I could make it for under $50. I'll keep you posted.
