I got a light box for photography more than a decade ago. It has come in handy on several occasions. While it is very simple technology, a lot has changed in the last decade since I got it. Today I’m going to look at a newer model and it should appeal to anyone who needs to do some product photography. Yes, I’ll include an Amazon link that earns me a tiny commission at no cost to you. No, I didn’t get anything to write this.
What has changed in the last decade? Well, the box itself and the backgrounds are more or less the same technology. But, lighting has moved to LED and mobile phones are used for a lot of photography. Let’s look at the features in the Emart Portable Photography Table Top Light Box Kit.
One benefit of these kits is that they are very portable. When folded, this kit is 16 x 13 x 1.1 inch. Unfold everything and snap the box together and it measures 16 x 13 x 14 inches. There are two LED light strips that are powered via USB. That means you can plug them into a laptop, a power plug or even a power bank. You can even choose the warmth of the light to get the right look for the shot.
As many people are using mobile phones for photography, a small tripod and phone holder is included. You also get four different backdrops in white, blue, gray or black. Of course you can easily use your own cloth to get even more colors. For those who want to shoot another angle, there is a hole in the top of the box so you can shoot from above. All in all, this is a very powerful tool for a great price! If you need to do some products photography, you should give it a look.
