    This is excellent, Jen! Thank you!

    So what did you grand total end up being, for all of the supplies? I'd like to talk my mom into lending me some cash to make a lightbox.
    The total of the items on the receipt from Home Depot came to 32.26 plus tax but I got the boards for free so I'm not sure how much they cost...although CDFPhotography mentioned that you can get the boards at the dollar store..

    I got bored today and I had everything I needed except Poster Board. So I bought some and went to town. Daylight Balanced CFLs for the light. Vignetting care of the 55 - 200 lens. Baking Parchment for diffusion.

    All I did in Photoshop was resize and then Auto Levels.










    Equipment: Nikon D60 (18-55 & 55-200 Nikkor Vr Lenses) Yongnuo PT-04TM Triggers, a Quantaray 900WA, 2 Yongnuo YN 460 Mk II's, 2 Flash Stands, Umbrellas and a 16" Softbox.

    Well hey there, Jen! How've you been?

    Been doing great Dane! Just working my butt of 23/7 with my backdrop business and photography! I haven't even gotten to explore much of VA since moving here in Oct. I need to get out more!
