I really wanted to take Alana's pictures myself in her costume but I wanted a studio type look, and I kept going back and forth about just going to sears, but I decided to try it myself.
cons: I shot at 640, about 5pm, in my living room with all the windows open, half of my apartment is all windows, so lots of light, but there is still a ton of grain. boohoo, not sure if it will look okay printed, but I only want to print 4x6, can anyone help me with that?
also Alana was not happy with putting her outfit on, I can't believe I even got this, I'll have to share some of the outtakes, the cheese in her hand was the only way she would stay in frame and not cry
okay and so about the background, that is my carpet of course, but the board is a painted drywall panel we have in our living room, since we are not aloud to paint, so we moved the couch, and then bought a piece of molding, clamped it to the bottom of the board and voila! we have a sorta ghetto mini studio.
also if you could please comment on anything that may need fixing before I print, oh and also, what is the best print lab, that you don't have to mail, I always hear Costco, but I don't have a membership, but will get one if needed :0) I want to print and mail these like yesterday
here is a larger version, nothing done for web, maybe you can see the grain more
