How to Make-Your-Own Macro Light Tents and Do the Laundry at the Same Time
Okay. So I've become fairly obsessed with finding the cheapest, best way to make a portable light tent for macro photography. There are some pretty clever ideas out there but I still haven't found one that is able be compacted down very easily (for attaching to a backpack) and then quickly able to be reassembled in the field. Haven't not tried any of these out I'm only speculating though. However I did find these three: 1, 2, 3. My favorite, which made me laugh –and which I've posted above– is of a light tent made out of a laundry basket. Those of us who happen to be poor, cheap and nature photographers (or all of the above) will go to great lengths to make a nice image in the cheapest way possible! :)
Please send me other links. I know that there is a better solution out there!
