Have you ever sat idly by your organic yarn coffee cozy/handmade succulent planter/artisanal small batch ice cream and thought to yourself, "If only there were some way to showcase this thing's unique beauty in a clean, minimal, professional way that I could then easily share via my mobile phone"? Of course you have! Designer Dominic Crinson
and miniature toy designer Brenna Jenson have just the ticket. The duo invented Lightcase
, a pop-up photo studio that can be deployed almost anywhere and requires only natural light to produce studio-worthy images with just a smartphone.
Lightcase comes flat-packed and takes mere seconds to assemble. Place it near a bright light and its frosted polypropylene plastic construction comes to life, offering a delicately proportioned micro studio that diffuses light and enables wired creatives—from top Instagrammers to Etsy tycoons—to artfully capture their wares.Lightcase is available online for 34GBP (53.72USD); you can read more about the product and its creators on Kickstarter.
