I got two pettiskirts at Hot Topic when I went to Indianapolis a couple of weekends ago. They did have to have the elastic tightened to fit around “E”‘s waist but she looks so cute in them. I also had won a crocheted hat on e-bay and finally received that on Monday. I was so excited to get some photos of her to show her Grandma J. We set the seamless paper up in my kitchen. For most of the shots I used my 50mm 1.4 lens. I was standing on top of “E”‘s Elmo table to get the shots looking down as I couldn’t get back far enough to get her all in the frame. I finally asked “B” to get my 18-55mm lens and was able to get some shots at her eye level. The lighting consisted of my one main light, window light and a second light on, but not pointed at the paper. I have to find out what’s wrong with that one light. I think the bulb is getting close to burning out, but I’m not sure where to get a replacement bulb.

    I adore that skirt on Emmy and the photos are fantastic! We need bigger studios! I didn’t realize one was from Hot Topic. Love the hat as well. She is some model!

    I can only imagine you standing on the little Elmo table in the kitchen getting these shots. LOL

    I forgot to say before….can’t you google the light manufacturer name plus “replacement bulb” and see what comes up? I bet you’ll find it cheaper online then at a local camera store. đŸ™‚
