In order to create professional “studio-like” looking product photographs, typically you will need good lighting source and a light tent. That’s what Shotbox is trying to provide. Shotbox is a Kickstarter project that aims to produce a collapsible tabletop light tent that uses LED lights to create a micro-studio environment for product photography, shooting with any camera even with smart devices.
Based on the project descriptions, the main features of the Shotbox include LED diffusion strips for softer light, LED dimmer switch for variable light intensity output control as well as inside support ribbing on the tent walls that further softens the light. The dimensions of Shotbox are 16 inches tall, 15.5 inches wide and 16 inches deep when extended in fully erect position, allowing product photography of small subjects on table tops. In the collapsed, flat position the Shotbox is reduced to 2.5 inches tall only which is easy to carry around. The latest Kickstarter project also features an extension panel that can be clipped onto the backdrop to create realistic background of choice, which can be custom-printed by yourself and fitted easily.
