Since moving home, I've realized something - the lighting in my room sucks. Who would have thought that a room with three outside walls and a window on each wall would have bad lighting? I definitely did not. I was really looking forward to it.
There have been many times that I have taken photos that turned out to be unusable since the lighting is terrible. That's a pretty frustrating thing since I take a lot of photos for this blog.
Easy Peasy Pie. She found a tutorial here for this homemade backdrop stand. You can easily change out the fabric in the background to match the object you are photographing. She even included trim on the bottom so that it looks like a regular wall.
It's a project I am really interested in and would love to do. I can only take photos during certain times of the day, depending on how the light is hitting the wall I want to use as the background. This is something that can go wherever the light is, even outside! The tutorial says the total cost is around $16. For a price like that, this is definitely something I would like to do. I just need to talk to my handy man (a.k.a. my dad) and see if he'd be up to helping me with this. Best part - you can disassemble the entire stand and store it away. Awesome!
At this point, there are so many projects on my list that this might get pushed off, but the more I look at this, the more I want it. It may soon be #1 on the project to-do list.
