I am determined to take better photographs! I’ve got my big girl camera off of the automatic setting. Thanks Julie! I also learned so much about photography specific to blogging from the splendid Blogging Your Way course I took from Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring recently.
Our guest bedroom is serving double duty as my new photography studio. Instead of forking over triple digit bucks to buy a light on a tripod with a reflecting umbrella, I created this assemblage to do the trick. I was inspired by this really useful post by local food blogger, Matt Wright.
I started with a vintage floor lamp that had been gutted, which I already owned. Attached a clip-on light from Lowes ($8) and a genuine light reflecting umbrella from Glazers ($30) with an extra clamp I had on hand. The darn thing works well!
