How to use a light box

Modern light boxes offer a world of creative possibilities. For most artists, designers and photographers they provide real time feedback on the appearance of their work; faithfully reproducing the colour tones and contrast as they would from natural light.

Depending on your area of art / design, there will be many different ways to get the most from a light box. Simple sketching and tracing through papers placed on the screen becomes easy and reliable with most professional light boxes able to illuminated enough to trace through anything up to 350gsm card.

Photographers are able to review and filter many negatives or slides simultaneously - working on entire albums or portfolios of shots at once. The blown up images can then be inspected in even greater detail with the LED back light amplifying colours and shades relatively.

Light Box - BeamBox

Light boxes are an essential tool for artists, designers, and crafters alike. With a toughened glass screen, light boxes are perfect for crafting work, allowing you to cut directly onto the surface of the screen with metal tools without worrying about leaving a scratch. This is particularly useful for working with textiles or fabrics.

LED light boxes, such as the BeamBox by Orchard, allow you to 'see' your work. Rear-lit by a vast array of tiny but powerful colour corrected light emitting diodes (LED's).

Reliable clarity is crucial for creative work, allowing ideas to flow without worrying about inconsistencies across days, weeks, or months of a project. LED light boxes, such as the BeamBox by Orchard, provide excellent clarity and illumination. Rear-lit by a vast array of tiny but powerful colour corrected light emitting diodes (LEDs), the light is scattered to prevent hot-spots as it passes through a translucent screen designed to evenly diffuse LED light frequencies.

With the BeamBox, you get a beautifully even light source from corner to corner, providing the perfect platform for getting creative. So why not upgrade to an Orchard BeamBox LED light box for your next creative project?
