Starting My Own Photo Studio
Well, the photographer in my is coming out. Why should I pay someone to photograph my creations when I can do it myself? I mean, I am the one that knows what I want to be shown of my creations, right? In high school, I wanted to be a photographer and took classes upon classes and was the Photo Editor of the Yearbook my senior year. I know a little about photography, it's just getting the stuff that is needed, you know?
Well, when I took some of my stuff to a local photographer, it got me to thinking, why not try it yourself? So I have set off to DIY it! lol I bought some grey fleece at the store last week to try it out. It's really not enough, but I was able to find some black in my abundant stash! Now I just need to get some lighting. I used the little lighting that came with my light box today to try it out. I know that I need more. I also have to do this when chipmunk and cheetah are not so excited. Cheetah kept getting into the shots and chipmunk was all wild.
Anyway, I got a few good ones. I need to find brighter lights and get a better camera, but it's a start... Now to get some models other then chipmunk and I will be all set! lol I tried to use cheetah but he just wanted to roll around.
