Pitch a Tent for Better Macro Photography


Step 4: Top 'Er Off


Instead of taping the top and back pieces, cut the nylon long enough to span the back and top - for our box, we used four feet and left extra nylon to drape over the front and sides. Now stretch the fabric across the box's top (tightly, but not too tightly), cut one-inch holes above each corner, and fit the holes over the protruding bits of PVC.


Unless you plan on using your light tent outside, you don't need to tape the top.

I’m impressed, you know what you’re talking about



an easier and more reliable way than tape to fasten the material is to cut a foot of pvc into 1" pieces and with each of those cut 1/5 to 1/4 of the circumference out. now just clamp down the material in various spots. works like a dream.
