tanya takes a wastepaper basket and turns it into a photography light tent, with good results too.
"my hack is a fniss wastepaper basket camera mount for doing macro photography. i call it the 'trashcanulator 2000', with the '2000' added simply to sound more pompous."
the camera is mounted on a l-shaped plywood frame for stability.
look at a sample!
