Now I am enjoying learning a little bit of photography and how I can take pictures of my hair, trying different outfit colors, to see which ones go well with it.
And of course everything as you must know by now, on a tight budget. Don't forget I am a TEACHER.
Sometime ago when I decided to start selling my crafts in a craft market here in Galveston, I bought a wedding tent, which I thought it was suitable for the show. How wrong I was! the island wind confirmed it, even before I could manage setting it up. So for several months it was packed in my car's trunk.
Last week when I thought about taking pictures of me wearing my long silver threads, I thought about buying a mini photography studio. While I was browsing Ebay to find the exact, ideal one for an affordable price, I remembered my tent in the trunk. I needed something white to bounce the light, I guess.
So the only equipment I bought was: Two soft boxes, and an Ipad tripod with a remote control. It is time to stop leaning my Ipad against my books and setting the shooting in 10 seconds.
Now I will have more time to pose, and see which is the best one.
Well to make this story shorter, I have a 10 x 10 canopy tent set in an empty bedroom, with a white sheet as background ( I did not like the clear plastic windows from the tent panels as background) and waiting for my tripod and soft boxes.
Even though I don have them, I had to try my "Studio" and here are some shots.
Hope you enjoy them and have fun looking how resourceful women are.
