A new studio...

...Where I photographed the new bag I made with my new zippers...it's just a new kind of day. I think this is the best bag I've ever made.



























When I say new studio, it's actually a white sheet duct taped to the wall above the desk in my dorm room. But it's the best I can do for now. It's kind of fun to see what you can do with a limited amount of money and equipment :)




















I don't know about everyone else, but the lighting in my room is pretty crummy. When I use a flash the colors get washed out and it creates weird looking shadows. So I use the $20 tripod I got at Wal-Mart and turn my flash off. It creates much better looking photographs. It's also easiest to use a solid colored evenly lighted backdrop. Even though I'm having fun improvising, once I make $50 I'm driving straight to Wal-Mart and buying the small light kit they have there :)

I am just trying to find time to experiment w/my camera and also found that not using my flash (had to figure out how to do that tooo!) gave me a better picture, I have a lot to learn....wanna git a tripod sometime!
