Arqbox portable photography LED light tent

Introducing the Arqbox Light Tent

Professional quality photos all have one thing in common- excellent lighting.  We have talked many times about the importance of proper lighting when photographing products or creating spins, and are now happy to offer the Arqbox- a portable LED light tent.  The light tent is available in two sizes: the Arqbox 16, which offers a 15.5” interior, and the Arqbox 24, which offers a 23.5” interior. They work perfectly with our 9” and 12” Arqspin turntables, allowing for professional quality 360° photography. Both lighting and background are crucial to good product photography and to good spins.  Here you can see two spins of the same object, one created using our light tent and one without:

Our Summer intern, Lisa, is a third year sociology major at UVA who is interested in marketing. On her first day, we had her create and edit an interactive 360 degree spin, using our Arqspin turntable and Arqbox lighting tent. We gave her the quick start guide and a turntable, and let her figure out the rest. Here she shares her experiences of creating her first spin.

Getting Started with Arqspins

Yesterday, I got to try out making my first spins with the Arqspin app and turntable.  I don’t consider myself a photographer, so I was a little intimidated to create a spin.  I have seen some pretty impressive ones, and was pretty sure mine would not compare. I decided try my hand at spinning a stapler, an apple, and a tape measure using my iPhone 6. Nathan gave me the the quick start guide, set me up with a tripod and an Arqspin 9” turntable and left me to own devices.

The app was really straightforward. I popped the stapler down, turned on the turntable, timed my rotation, turned off the turntable and tapped record. And made my first mistake. As soon as I hit record I realized I should have left the turntable on. My reaction was due to not wanting to have my arm in the background, but Nathan explained that the spin actually won’t register properly if the object isn’t rotating initially.  I turned on the turntable, and then hit record. Capturing the spin only took a few seconds, and then I was able to edit it. I could crop, adjust color balance and loop points, and add keywords right from the app.  I then uploaded my spins to the cloud where I had even more editing options.
