Pikes Peak Makerspace (PPM) is dedicated to supporting our maker community in their creative process by providing shared space, shared tools, materials and a knowledge base to turn their ideas into reality.

Our members have built a large but portable table with seamless backdrop and lighting to use for product photography.

By large we mean the surface is a full 4'x8' sheet of plywood. (PPM does not have any cameras or darkroom facilities.)
