...and by 'Home Studio' I really mean Dining Room.
Last year I finally upgraded to a DLSR. One of my 'justifications' was that I'd never have to take Munchkin to get a crappy studio picture again. So I spent the year obsessively taking pictures and trying to figure out how I was going to get a 'studio' portrait in our house. Our dining room has great light, but I didn't really want the hard wood/baseboard/wall as the backdrop. So I did some Googling and Pinterest searches looking for backdrop holders. Enter Hubster and all of his awesomeness. He took a look at a few of the pictures and then built the perfect backdrop holder
He just used a few 2x4s to build the supports...
and two pieces of PVC to hold the backdrops (he used a hole saw to cut out the hole for the PVC to fit through)...
For this year's Christmas picture, I used a few yards of dark grey felt that I steamed after hanging up. I'd like to say that the pictures were awesome...but Munchkin was not in the mood and I was rushing. This is the best one from the bunch:
Aaaand some outtakes:
I love that Hubster will build me whatever crazy thing I ask for and act like it's totally normal for a dining room to get turned upside down all in the name of a Christmas picture!
