A lot of photographers put small objects in a box with walls made out of diffusion material to create even lighting. Photographer Kevin Lynch took that idea further and created a box large enough for people to move around in. The idea sprang out of his desire to emulate outside lighting any time of day while on location shooting a movie poster. He put it together with PVC pipe and diffusion material.
The nice thing about using PVC pipe is that you can swap out material to create a lightbox, a diffusion box, or a shadowless box.
The white box allows you to create consistent lighting you can control in an environment that feels safe for your subject. They can move around freely and the lighting stays consistent. They don’t have to stand in one spot.

You can put plexiglass on the floor to add dimension, reflections, and depth.
This is a great idea that could be used in a variety of ways. I could see using a box like this at events where photos need to be taken, such as: festivals, proms, concerts, tournaments.
