Join the fun at Hope and BelieveThis week's challenge is Studio: 'Show us your shots and tell me your secrets. I want to see what you create in a "studio" setting. Let me know what backgrounds are your faves and where you shoot.'
Well, I was excited about this challenge as I'm always in need of new ideas for my "studio" shots! I don't have a studio, I have whatever I can find, so here's what I've found!
September 11, 2002 "Studio": I borrowed a camera and used the corner of the boys' room.... I first hung a white sheet and then arranged the flag very carefully behind them. I threw some benches in front covered with a blanket, arranged the kids and took pictures.Put a different blanket on the bench.Wasn't Robby a doll?!
Traded the flag for Cody's bed spread. Changed the sitting from a bench to buckets covered with a blanket and arranged the Harry Potter books, added the cloak and wand.
January 2004 "Studio": My living room wall a bench covered with lacy curtains and my daughter dressed in her flower girl dress from a wedding. We did these for her baptism program.
January 21, 2009 "Studio": dining room, backdrop a 1890's - 1900's bath cabinet (got for a dollar at a yard sale) covered with slippery cream material (can ya tell I'm no seamstress?) purchased from the second-hand store in a bag for a buck! Armrest/seat: Dress-up treasure box flipped over and covered in material.
Add some happy kids and even a grumpy teen put the camera on sepia --- perfect photo shoot!
This is What Em wore to church and since I had this challenge on the brain, I quick setup a "Studio": bedroom corner, long lead rope, black king size sheet, bucket with lid and black pillow case. Add one girl ready for posing and you've got it!
