Hi all. I recently acquired a few bookshelves which have become the new home for my miniatures and gaming materials. The shelves came with a good out section in the middle and I think it might be the perfect place for a photo set-up.
I currently use a white sheet of cardstock as an infinite backdrop with the two 1520 lumens daylight LEDs that I use for painting and a light source from either side. It works well enough but it's just inconvenient enough to set up that I'm looking for change.
I figure now is a great time for an upgrade.
I'm thinking I've never really worked with lighting and anything electrical so I think that's mostly where I need guidance. I'm hoping I can fasten some LED strips to the walls and top and then run the wiring out that hole that was conveniently cut out of the back.
Other than that, I'm thinking I can just tape in a sheet of white poster paper and swap it out if it starts to get too beat up. If I'm really lucky, there will still be room inside to store my camera bag.
I also am wondering if some kind of diffusion will be necessary or if the LED strips will have a general enough soft light on their own.
I also have to be mindful of wall placement because the arms of the "door" brush against the wall about midway when closed.
For the curious, the shelf is about 14" deep, 13" high, and 25" across. And the open "door" is about 14"
Thoughts/advice of any kind are welcome!
As a side note, if the LEDs work well here, Iight try swapping out the old lights in the display cabinets up top. They are a gross old orange color.
