Set up your new WhiteBox™

Use these basic steps to kickstart your product photography with your new WhiteBox™.

How to use WhiteBox
Unpack WhiteBox

1. Unpack the WhiteBox™

The entire WhiteBox and its components can be collapsed into a slim folder! Unzip this and unpack the backdrops, power cable, and WhiteBox™ body.

Release WhiteBox

2. Release and unfold the WhiteBox™

Release the WhiteBox™ from its compact state by tugging out the side flaps. Don’t be afraid to bend the flaps – the material is engineered to be sturdy yet flexible!

Lay WhiteBox flat

3. Lay the WhiteBox™ flat

Before setting up the WhiteBox™ for the first time, it is a good idea to lay the WhiteBox™ flat on the floor by bringing each flap joint through its full range of motion. This is because the flexible plastic may develop a ‘memory’ after being in the compact state for some time, which can cause the walls of the WhiteBox™ to cave inwards when erect.

4. Set each side flap at a 90° angle to the body

Ready the WhiteBox™ for erection by setting each flap at approximately a right angle to the body. This helps the WhiteBox™ walls stay straight and makes it easier to connect the snap buttons.

Align and connect the 3 snap buttons on each side of the WhiteBox™ (6 in total) to erect it, starting with the middle button before moving to the upper and lower buttons.

6. Mount a backdrop onto the WhiteBox™

Mount one of the included backdrops by attaching it to the hooks at the back of WhiteBox™ interior. You could attach your own custom backdrops by folding them over the hooks or punching holes in the them.

WhiteBox additional LED

7. Attach and connect an additional LED strip, if required

If you’d purchased an additional LED strip, attach it to the WhiteBox™ by peeling away the adhesive backing and pressing it firmly onto the desired position. Connect the additional LED strip to the pre-installed LED strip using the relay cable provided.

An extra LED provides twice as much light, which is useful for bringing out additional details to cameras with weak sensors, such as mobile phone cameras.

WhiteBox lighting angle

8. Adjust the incidence angle of the light by bending the lighting flap

By default, we recommend directing the light towards the center of the WhiteBox™, where you should place your photography subject. In this position, the lighting flap will form a right angle to the side flap when viewed from the side.
