I've been looking far and wide for instructions on how to build a lightbox. The kind I'm looking for is not the light box for taking photos of a small object, or for looking at slides/negs, but for showing Duratrans photos in a gallery setting.
The two main things I need to figure out are:
How far away should the fluorescents be from the image?
Do I need to have frosted plexi behind the image or is that overkill (being that Duratrans is diffused on the back already)
Any help or directions to a site that details this stuff would be greatly appreciated.
Ive been looking for the same info lately. One thing you can do is use that plastic 'diamond' plexi diffuser stuff, you know...the kind of plexi over most 'office' florescents. Using this under the semi-opque white plexi will make sure the light is diffuse over area.
Please post anything you find out.
