Part of my reviewing and blogging that I know I needed help with was photography; taking pictures of the products themselves. One of my goals for 2017, which is now my second year of reviewing, was to improve them.
The Bright Box is made from hard but, pliable, polypropylene material with a matte finish to the surface; durable yet, lightweight. When collapsed, and folded into itself its dimensions are 11.6” x 10.6” x 1.7”. Set-up literally takes seconds and comes with both a black and white backdrop. It has a strip of white LEDs lining the top tab giving the ability to adjust lighting; the micro-USB comes with it also to power the LEDs. Company sends out a very helpful “How to” e-book on getting the best pictures from their Bright Box for free.
When comparing to other portable photo studios a few bits made this stand out and above the others:
(1) Use of magnets vice Velcro to hold the corners together.
(2) Use of foam sheets vice cloth which gets wrinkled easily; no more trying to smooth the cloth out and the foam sheets are considerably more waterproof than cloth.
I can plug it right into my computer or into my USB Wall Charger; the wall charger is my preferred way due to its portability. My pictures have gone 180° and am absolutely thrilled with everything about it! I am slowly but, surely working on redoing and updating as many product photos as I can. Both the black and white backdrops easily install and make my pictures look great (in my opinion).
While the Bright Box is perfect for items on the smaller scale, this is not for larger items. Unfortunately, the company does not have any larger size so, I will be looking at other companies to be able to photograph my larger products. I currently have my eye on this 16” x 16” which I will be reviewing at a later date after testing.
Disclosure: I received the Bright Box discounted from Bright Box however; this in no way influenced my review and I chose to write this review with no obligation to do so. I only write honest reviews regardless of whether I purchased a product at full price, at a discount, or received it free.
