DIY Softbox Tests by onixa DIY Softbox Tests by onixa

Don't ask for any links on how to make a softbox. I made mine from memory, and not a tutorial :)

Just build my very own first DIY softbox
About 24" by 18"
It's kind of square, but still if you turn it verticaly it will work :)

Anyway, hope you enjoy some of my test shots lol.
All of these images are unedited, especialy to show what it looked like without any photoshop.

I like the results :D
ps. hope you like my little barbie models XD Don't have anyone who is willing to model... so I suffer with dolls lol.

Oh, and please don't ask how to build one! Because i made mine from memory, and not from a particular tutorial. Therefore i can't give you any links or anything like that, hence there is no sertain tutorial :aww:
Good luck, and thanks for looking :heart:

To get myself a practice model, available 24/7 I went to a wig store and bought a cheap wig with one of those styrofoam heads that the wigs are stored on. The advantage is that it is full size (for humans). I must admit that Barbie is prettier tho.

This is great, and super helpful - what did you use inside the softbox as a light? Do you have an external flash or did you just use a lamp?

Very creative! I think I've done something similar once, but with more of a funnel shape. Also, off topic question here, but... what font did you use for the tutorial??? XD

Wow! I really like the shots you used in this tutorial... It makes me wish I still had my Barbies.

I'm going to have to make myself a softbox now.

Hey, your barbies are good models regardless! =D They dont fuss, move around when you dont want them to.. lol.

I like your photo tutorials.. Its nice to see someone reaching out to help others improve =) Even small improvements by adding a reflector make huge differences in shots (as I discovered last quarter in school) =D
