    I was browsing Amazon last week and came across light boxes. I've looked at them before but for some reason this time I couldn't get them out of my head and at the weekend bought a large-ish one so I could put a tonk inside it :-D

    It arrived today and I have just been having a bit of a test with some tonk pics...

    Jammy had to be tempted in with a toy, but then she went catnip crazy. Hence the squabble with ck in the second pic.

    Very nice. I've often looked at those myself for the cats, which one did you go for?

    I got this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B08JLY27SM?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

    Mainly because 1. It was a lot cheaper than the others and 2. Since it's a pop up cube I figured it would be incredibly easy to tempt cats into and 3. 60cm seemed a good size for the cats to fit in!

    It also folds down pretty well so won't take up loads of space when not in use!

    Love the close ups! I also like the addition of the blanket to hide the actual light box a bit.

    Personally, I'd be doing a tiny bit of cropping and colour/balance correction on some of them. You've got the potential for some really stunning photos!

    (Hope you find mind, I've done a quick 2 minutes on one to show what I mean. I think the quality was reduced in the process, it'd look better if you did this from the original...)

    Keen to see what you get with a real camera!
