    Default My new floor - pull back added post 12

    Finally took pictures a few days ago with my new floor. Does that fabric look okay? I need to build a backdrop stand and get better fabrics. I have a lot of velour type fabric which doesn't look right with the baseboard and the floor.

    This was Sunday, before I got the baseboard. That's crown molding behind him and it's not quite long enough. Yes, I know he's OOF ... I was having light issues that day I think.

    And then I bought a baseboard Sunday night and my friend came over on Monday, so I photographed her little guy. I processed the photos differently, I think the colors are better on this one than the one of Jack. I didn't sharpen for web, it really is more sharp in person.

    Anyhow, that's the floor. I'm digging it!

    Mine is on it's way!!

    In the photo of Jack the fabric isn't stretched tight so it looks like fabric (not like a wall) but in the other pic it looks better.

    How cute! Can I see a pull back shot? (pretty please?!) Hehe! I only have the floor right now, but I want to get a better set up. Where did you get the baseboard, home depot or somewhere like that?

    The floor is beautiful!

    It's interesting about that fabric...it really looks much much better more in focus. When using that backdrop, I'd recommend keeping your aperture as high as possible or your subject closer to the backdrop like in that 2nd picture...otherwise I think it looks a touch messy.

    once I had the baseboard, it was easier to get the fabric pulled tighter.

    I got 6' of baseboard at Home Depot for $10. it was primed, but I think I want to paint a semi gloss white on it.

    Amber, thanks for that advice, definitely keeping it in mind. I was thinking about using that set up with a basket for the newborn shoot I have coming up.

    Brandi - I still have it set up, so I'll do a pullback shot tomorrow just with the props I have. (I'm not allowed to pick up Jack for 10 days, so I can't mess with him).

    Looks great! The baseboard definitely made the fabric look nicer, not as messy in the second picture. I agree with Amber that it looks better more in focus too.

    I love the idea in the first one, the fire truck is super cute and once you have your lighting and focus issues figured out, I think it would be a great picture. Good work!

    My floor is on the way too! Soon enough we'll all have the same floor in our pictures. LOL

    Look forward to seeing your pulled back shot! A friend of mine with the same floor sent me a pulled back shot the other day. It seems so easy.

    Looks awesome Gwen! I simply adore it! I am going to be looking into buying one as soon as our finances are straightened out! I think the fabric looks a lot better after the board too. Can't wait to see more!
