Shot this in my home made lightbox. It is one of my wedding gifts. I dont know from what it is made of ... The liked mood of this statue. So meditative and spiritual.Lord shiva drinking the halaa-hala

Good shot, I will say you have not yet crack used of the light box yet :) I like the framing though. Shot looks a little flat to me. Have a look at these 2 images http://alakija.shutterchance.com/ & http://www.alakija.com/agrey_original.jpg

Now for me that is how to wake up an image.

thanks for the link to the lightbox... I had a light tent (eztent.com) before moving to Belgium but sold it. I think it diffused the light better than the posterboard method but the posterboard is still probably a good alternative.

This shot appears a bit flat to me as well - maybe up the brightness and contrast a bit.

One cool idea for the lightbox would be to put dimmers on each bulb so you could experiment with lighting ratios. I might have to try that one!

@Jason Kravitz: Jason i have added a voltage regulator to the circuit. To experiment with lighting ratios. I will take a bunch of pics of the setup and put'em online to show you guys.
