Fab photos

Here is another new toy! boy, there is no quiting now! I guess we are at the point of investment with things... there is no turning back.
I found this neat little kit of all places 'Wally-Mart' while out school shopping today.
It comes with a tiny tripod for your camera, two lights and this diffuse/back drop! Now there is no having to wait till there is the perfect day light...'cause there will be NO going outside come this winter!lol!
This is my first picture using this little set. I didn't tweak it with soft wear before loading it here! There are shadows, and maybe I will use my flash as well next time.
This is the next pic... I did lighten it on the 'ole computer. But it turned out very nice I think. This is a charm I am making for Leirka of http://www.tumbleweedandrose.etsy.com/ (lovely lady by the way!)
Here is a 'double button' charm, actually Shabbyinthecity's charm now! Thanks dear!

This is a neat way to manipulate the surroundings to get your desired affect... I was thinking today, are we to be defined by our surroundings or are we to define our surroundings? I chose defining my surroundings!
Hope everyone is having a great week!

oh love your new toy, I bought what I would call a very cheap c**p version here in the UK that cost me $40 and not great like that, the ones like that here in the UK are about $80.00 so thats fab.
Loving all the new charms, oh and your own website woohoo for you.

Ooo I can't wait!
I got some studio lighting and all I could do was make shadows...even with my flash I never got rid of them....

I've been wishing for something like this-I just can't seem to take pics with good lighting. I'll have to check it out at WM!

Beadiful Things said...

Take your time. :-) It can be a headache, I know -- sorry!

Actually $48 is a good price. You can find it for less on Ebay, but then the shipping costs more than the tent, giving you a total of over $60. I will be heading to Walmart soon! Wheee! Oh...one more question: Walmart's a big place; what section did you find it in?

KeelyB said...

Wow! That is so neat! Im definitely gonna have to check our walmart out and see if they have anything that fancy! Taking photos outside is getting old...especially in this heat! Im glad youre having fun with all of the new toys!

I think the whole photography thing is technique as well as equipment... I think we found this kit neart the photo section of WM..

My sister in law bought that same lighting studio, and she was really impressed with it. Maybe I should jump the bandwagon. Your photos are looking great.

Oh wow! I'm so gonna get one. I don't want to be outside in the winter either!! And I think that price is AWESOME! I've heard of other Etsy-ers talking about collecting supplies for a homemade one with all the clamp lights, tubs, etc & I'm sure I remember they spent about the same, or even a bit extra. Thanks Christine!!!

I LOVE this charm! Poo on whoever scared you with negative feedback. Can I get one that says "Bless" or something like that? Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings... Polly
