Mini Studio and Pictures

It seems that my camera's white balance might be off or something. Or maybe it's the new lens. Or the posterboard isn't as white as my eyes think it is. I don't know. I'll need to do more tests.

Anyway, through some trial and error (and getting pissed off at the Home Depot wood guy in the process and changing my plans as result), I put together a sort of a mini-studio using foam posterboards, white duct tape, and leftover muslin wrapped over a coathanger for a light diffuser. Here are some test shots.

A very bad shot of the "mini studio"

Fa la la la

On bright side...I'm glad I did this. I think that after I get an idea of what I need, I'll be able to build a better box next time. I know there are tons of resources out there, but I'd rather spend 10 bucks and a couple hours to build something that I don't mind wrecking (and believe me, I'm getting ideas) than spend 50-100 bucks for something I'd be afraid to ruin. Not to mention, I can think of better ways to spend 50 bucks.
