I'm Loving My New Photo Cube

I'm so excited to show you my new $59.99 photo cube!  


I have wanted a photo cube for a long time because I don't have great natural light in my house for picture taking and when I shopped the local camera store I found the whole set up with lights was just to expensive. 


Now, I do very few sponsored posts, only when I think it is a product you would be interested in.  So, when I was contacted by the kind folks at The LA Shop to choose a product and blog about...And a photo cube was one of my choices...Heck yes, I jumped on it!


They didn't tell me what to say about this photo cube, If I didn't like it I would have sent it back.  
 I am telling you honestly....It is Fabulous!!!   

Here's what you get for $59.99 


A large 24" photo cube
2 lights that have switches to turn off and on
2 spare light bulbs!
White, blue, black, and red interchangeable back drops
A stand to hold your SLR camera or Iphone


But wait who has room for all of this......Check this out.... Here is the case it all came in....I have room for that!


My own little photo studio....All set up on my sewing table!



This is not flimsy cheap equipment, this is a sturdy set up....So, if you are in the market for a photo cube....


......When you get to The LA Shop, type in "Photo cube" and you will see a variety of different cubes...Be sure to check out all of the other photography products they have along with a totally eclectic inventory of products from patio furniture to musical instruments... at crazy...Shut the door...Low prices!

Looks like it's working out nicely for you. Hubby got a set for me about a year ago that looked exactly like it. We couldn't get the camera holder to hold the camera up...it just kept flopping over no matter what we did. And, the lights looked horrible through the fabric box...making big light spots. There were other reasons we weren't happy but it's been so long that I don't remember now. I've been meaning to try something different but just haven't gotten around to it yet. This one isn't bad for the price though.

Carol, I SO have to have one!!! Your pictures have always been wonderful, but these are so professional and sharp. Thanks for the tip and for your weekly doses of inspiration and beauty!

A new camera came for me yesterday from Sarah and Alex as a retirement gift. I must learn how to use it and I am finding out that there should be no more stuff coming into my house (for a while), anyway ;D. This box looks like a wonderful tool for people that are serious about taking quality picture. I'm glad you were able to share with us.♥♫

I didn't even know these existed! I'll have to check this out. Thanks!

I just made one because I didn't want to pay big bucks, I wish I would have seen this sooner.

Angela said...

That box looks so handy.
I live in a poorly lit flat
and have to wait until it is 4 o'clock so the light is good for picture taking.
I need one like this!

Thank you dear Carol!!! I have just ordered this setup. I had tried to make such contraptions but never had any success. For this price I am treating myself and promise to fill my etsy shop I have been neglecting. Happy Photography Sessions...

Carol,

Those pictures are really pretty - I never even knew these existed. If I get my etsy shop running again, I am so getting one of those.

OMG, I love it! I've been thinking of buying a photo cube, but was in a quandary on what to get that will work for me. This looks like a great set-up. Thank you!

Tamara said...

Blessings,

Carol,
I thought you would like to know if someone hasn't told you already. I clicked on the 2013 Where Bloggers Create button and it came up as an error. I tried to send this in a e-mail but it failed.

Well I've not heard of such a thing but it sure makes your photos pop! How fun -- enjoy your new toy!

camp and cottage living said...

Oh,how nice. I can see where it will be something you will use often.
Your decorated hat look great!

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

WOW, the photos are FAB! Guess it really helps to have a photo box.
Picked up the magazine that you are published in today! FUN!
Warmly,

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Aren't they wonderful? I have one that unfortunately stays folded up most of the time because I don't have a permanent place for it. They sure do come in handy for those close up shots and on bad lighting days. Great investment. Love the beautiful vintage hat!!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

I had no idea what a photo cube was! LOL Looks like it is working great for you as your pictures are great. So nice that it folds up small! Enjoy! Nancy

Debbie said...

I have been wanting a photo cube and even googled ways to make my own (Cheap, cheap, cheap). I would like this. Your photos looked gorgeous, but that might be partly because of the subject, you know...

NanaDiana said...

Wow- Carol-That is amazing AND a good price. I love how your photos turn out using it. Amazing product- thanks for sharing the info- xo Diana

Shabby chic Sandy said...

That is awesome--I would love to have one of those. lucky you!

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I never have good light inside here, so I always take small items outside to photograph. Such a light box seems to work wonderful and I really should think about getting one.
The hats are gorgeous btw.

Debbi said...

DANG!! That is a really good price. It would be nice to lose all the staging equipment I have now! Thanks for sharing!

Melody Shingler said...

Oh wow! Those ARE fabulous photos. (ummmmmm -- fabulous HATS, too!)

PhotoCube would erase the messy house I have to shoot around - WIN! ;)

Mimi Sue said...

Those pictures really look like they're done by a professional! I'll go take a look. Mimi

Rose said...

I just ordered mine !!!!Can't wait to get it.

Little Miss Maggie said...

This looks like a great product. I must check into it.

Doni said...

Well, not only do I like that photo cube, and will most likely get one in the future, I also love those gorgeous millinery love hats!! Gorgeous!! Great post and thanks so much for sharing this neat product!

Hi Carol

I was so excited when I saw your photo cube. I went right over and ordered one. I made an error and put in Blogger (forgot the S) and it would not take it. I went ahead and ordered anyway because with no shipping charge (which amazed me) I still felt it was a great bargain.

I need all the help I can get with my pics.

I ordered the 16", as it fits the space I have, the discounts code worked, and it was free shipping, the final price was 35.99
Thanks so much for posting this as I really have a need for it.
Your blog and home are wonderful!
