Well I'm 19 years old, and I LOVE photography! My persoanl favorite thing to photography is Myself. I think the reason for this is that I don't really have anyone else who I know whats to let me photograph them other then some friends. I think after I get a desent setup I will ask more people if I could take their pictures for free, and add on to my portfolio. Anyways getting to my question. I live at my fathers house. In the basement. And the Lighting in here is very YELLOW! I mean super yellow. It's icky. My father sells on eBay for a living (we kinda partner it ... I write/post/take pictures of the ad and he gets the stuff. We had to come up with a better idea to take pictuers so in my room we put up a white sheet. Last night I bought 4 large black poster boards to take pictures in front of black. It sorta works, but I really wish I had something better. If you have any ideas for that, pleast let me know. Anyways on to the next thing the lighting. My father bought two stands with 2 big lights on each of them I think in my eyes they are yellow too, but it might just be me. He got them at home depot. I mean will they work? I want to be able to take phtographts with the backgrounds perfecly white. Sorta like this ... or How is that done? I guess what I really wanna know is what's the best way to turn my bedroom into a Mini Studio? If you could give me two options the stuff I have now ... and what I could buy to really make it amazing. We had a flood down here about 3 months ago and about 5 grand of my stuff got Destyoed .. so I am going to be getting a HUGE settlement check soon I hope. So money is sorta not an issue. Thanks! PS: Here's some photos of me to explain what i Mean. See how dark my skin comes out? I want it to look pale like it sorta does in real life. Im not that dark .. I mean look at this photo of me ... (sry for the random photo ..lol) So again any help you can give me at all. For any of the following questions Lighting (I think that's the biggest problem, we have the two stands now, if you have any sujestions of where to put them, or have 1 on 1 of or something, that'd be great. Or the option of other stuff, mind you I've never really used studio lights before, so I'd have to learn, but I would be willing to learn. I want natural light, not this YELLOW stuff. Backdrops, for the white, and black backdrops you see what I'm using. However if you have a better idea I'd love to hear it! I guess what you take your picture on the background of is very importent too. Anythin else I mentioned in this that I forgot to make a quesiton for, or just sujestions in general. (FYI: I'm using a Sony 4.1 Megapixal P&S camera. I really wanna get a Nikon D70 someday, but I do use every now and again a Manual 35mm SLR.
