    Agreed - if I weren't so lazy I could be taking pics right now no matter the weather. Plus in the winter it'd almost be dark this time of day after work.

    I'm envious of the whites those two have achieved!

    I'd say "pop-over"...with French cuffs - new one on me.

    Update - received said hangers, and they exceeded my expectations. I figured they'd be junk, and all tossed into a box and get scratched up. Ended up receiving a 19-pound box via FedEx ground today. Large box (24" x 15" x 15"). Packing material on top / sides. Each hanger individually wrapped. A few have some slight "impressions" - from being at the bottom of the box. Yanked on the hook pretty hard and it did not pop out, solid wood, did not twist. Heard from another SF member that the price has gone up to $30 and they prefer to go straight thru PayPal (not surprising - I can't see how they made any money at $25 and free shipping, after eBay & PayPal fees). I'm more than happy with these and am pleasantly surprised. YMMV - I assume they sell the same hangers, pack well, ship FedEx but cannot say. Gonna use them for the nice leathers I got from @SpooPoker and other natural shoulder jackets - SC / suit hangers leave pointy shoulders.

    back in art class, we use this thing call the "drafting table" that lets you see and trace the outline of a picture.
    I've thought about this idea but I'm not sure if it will give off enough lighting to make your background completely white (unless you up your exposure)

    I shoot outside as my space is quite limited for a setup right now and I have great outdoor lighting. If done right I think the photos can come out really nice, but not practical for most really high volume sellers. Here is an example of a few listings I've done with outdoor lighting:

    Love that show!

    I need to get me a gray card...and then learn how to use it lol. Does it do wonders? Even for those who sometimes shoot in auto [​IMG]
