Simple, elegant, DIY studio under $4...

I was doing my typical web surfing one day and came across the blog of Sandra Marek "My 365 Days of Reality".

I really liked her images and the thought that was behind them but what I liked even more was they way she talked about family (and other things that are truly important like friends and life in general).

So I took the time to dig deeper into her blog and found a post she did about Isabella's birthday and shooting a bracelet using a hardware store light that cost her under $4, some white cardboard, and a reflector.

Below are two shots from that post but be sure to check out the entire $4 DIY studio post as she shoots the bracelet several different ways, when you are done you will want to look around "My 365 Days of Reality" and Sandra's website as well.

Last summer I did a DIY product studio of my own, following this advice:

Great idea. i certainly have a lot of white foam board "scraps" left after cutting backing for prints.
