Photo shot with SHOTBOX and my Samsung Galaxy S5 Smartphone.
Below you can see the setup inside the box. I used a print that looks like concrete for the base and a print that looks like a wooden fence for the background. I love that you can see the wood grain and splintering in the background print! You would never know that is not a real fence! I grabbed a few leaves that blew into my garage to add some color, texture, dimension and interest to my picture. I used one very dry and curled leaf as a base to rest the tag on. I used the Sideshot Arm for additional front light and to rest my phone on. I adjusted the height and angle of the arm until I got the shot that I wanted.
