This is a picture of my 'makeshift studio', for Paula. Basically, what I do is take my drapes down (they are just long pieces of fabric) and then clothespin them back onto the rod to cover the entire window, after creating a soft drape on either side. I laid a white tablecloth on the floor. In some of the photos I used a beanbag for seating, which I laid UNDER the tablecloth. To the right, I have my sewing desk (which is usually in the window...so I just moved it out of the way) and I put some more white fabric there with a light bulb next to it. This was my makeshift lighting-which did not really work very well. But, hey, I tried. I guess if I wanted all NATURAL lighting, I shouldn't have done it at dusk! ;-) The dark spots on the white are pieces of dried rosepetals-now crushed to smithereens.
I have been meaning to do a 'photoshoot' for MONTHS now but have been procrastinating. Seeing what it does to my living room, can you blame me?!?! Well, I DID it and I am happy and I hope that my MOM is happy.
Not all the photos I posted are 'frame worthy', but each one is dear to me-whether in the expressions on the children's faces or in the portrayal of the fun spunk of it all. So, I hate to be so redundant, but I had to post all my favorites, even if the differences are subtle. VERY subtle! If you think THIS is a lot, I hate to say it, but I only posted about half that I took!
(Mental Note: Taking 'posed' shot of the Panda was near impossible. Don't try this again for a LOOONG time....)
