hello! I just came across this forum and thought I would try my question here. I love to take pictures (mostly of my baby) and edit them in photoshop..however I can no matter what come up with good lighting in my home. there's always shadows or the lights too bright or it makes him look a funny color..ect.. I am not a professional or even an amature (sp) but I took my son to Sears to have his 3 month pictures taken and I ended up spending 140 dollars!!!!! I was so mad so i came home and took some of my own. I use bedsheets as a background and just the overhead light for light and then I edit them and they turned out 200X better than the ones at Sears that left me eating ham sandwiches for the next 2 weeks! My question is: Is there any type of regular lamp or bulb I can buy from just a reg. store that would give me a better picture?? I can't spend hundreds of dollars on a light but I would like to get something that's better than the overhead light. Here is a link to some of the before and after pictures I took myself. The last one you can see the problem I have with shadows to the left of his face. I could edit it out on photoshop but I don't have time and I can never get it right. http://home.insightbb.com/~ksutton/before_and_after_photos.htm Thank you soooooooo much!
