This Homemade Coconut Milk recipe is a little messy to make, however, I like it since it’s a heck of a lot easier than cracking open a fresh coconut and scooping out the “meat,” etc.
My DIY lightbox (first setup) inspired by the Strobist:
Built from an LG vacuum cleaner box, cut to about 12x12x12 inches. Holes cut in sides and top, and covered in tissue paper. I painted the inside white with poster paint, but I don’t know if that helps.
I set the D40X to ‘M’ with aperture at f/16 and experiment with shutter settings. I view each image on the LCD with the highlight setting, to find the point at which just the background is blown out. I trigger the shot with my Nikon remote control to avoid camera jiggle (ML-L3, available separately).
I have an updated set-up here.

I’m Glad I have Glad. You can use it to cover your camera and lens from rain, just cut a hole on the other end, and you now have a rain cover for your camera.
