I don't think I've posted on this forum before, but I have a few questions and I was hoping someone on here could help me.
I'd like to build a "blackbox" or "whitebox" (I'm not sure if that's actually what they're called) for taking pictures of my reptiles, but I am not sure how best to go about doing it. I tried to make a "blackbox" out of foam board, but, as I expected, the flash of my camera reflected off of the surface of the foam board and washed out the shot.
I suppose it should be noted that I don't have a sophisticated DSLR camera (though I wish I did), and use a Canon S2IS for my photography.

Can anyone provide some advice on how best to make a "blackbox" or "whitebox"?
