White Box

I made a white box today so that I could photograph a project that I won't be able to share with you for a while.
Weekend flea-market find

But the white box is like a puppy I can't put down! I'm looking around the house for things that it can chew on.

I am so excited with the possibilities.

I guess this would be more impressive if my blog had a white background!


  1. Where will your photography go next Leslie? You continue to grow right before our eyes!
    I have the exact same napkin ring in your first photo... isn't it the sweetest? I found mine in Danville after leaving our Montana expedition.

  2. oh wait... yours isn't a napkin ring at all! But they are the same in very other way.

  3. Okay, I want to see the white box set up. How big is it? I made a very temporary white box this weekend. And I have all kinds of questions. Its a process to get a good set up so one can take all these images!

  4. Hi Leslie. My white box is a basically two foot by two foot cardboard box that I made using this tutorial. I was fortunate to have a double thickness box in my basement, so I expect this set up will last for a long time.

    If you have any questions, please send me an e-mail.

  5. Oops. This tutorial:

  7. Nicely done! I like it. You are, indeed, an artist, aren't you? lol

  8. Love the pieces from your collections that you did photograph. I saw a portable one somewhere recently, maybe in CPS Studios that you could get, it was pretty cool. Of course it helps that you are such a good photographer anyway. xox Corrine

  9. Great photos...I love the Akira doll.
    Now I am going to check out the tutorial.
    See you soon :) :)

  10. Oh... your white box effect is amazing, and especially with a black background!!! roxanne

  11. Well, I must say, that's quite a well-behaved puppy. I wonder what's been so important that I haven't had time to meet it !
