the garment rack pullback shots

Just remembered that a couple of you wanted to see pics of the thing I used for my backdrop for Eva's Christmas pics. Here it worked really great! I used it for some of my friends' son's photos too recently. Very easy to set up and move around and adjust. Perfect size for kids.

Front (before I neatened up the fabric!):

Back (extender rods at top were out a bit wider than you can see here):

Great idea! Thanks for the pics! I may have to see if I can find something like that to use. Right now I use stools or chairs from the kitchen, but as they are getting taller, they are starting to stand above the stools.

Where did you buy the garment rack? I'm thinking of getting one too.

Found this one at Target. I chose this for its double-adjustable-ness (vert & horiz), and its sturdiness & size. The vertical rods (upper half) can go even higher than I had them set at in these pics, too. Then I just used clamps from a set that my hubby had lying around.

It's great because you can lay out the fabric, then move the rack back a bit so the fabric is at a slight angle...then have the child sit at the front edge of the fabric so that your DOF increases and almost all wrinkles in the fabric just disappear:

Thanks for sharing! I need something portable. The pvc one my DH built is great, but too big/bulky.
