I actually built something this morning. I know it's not much but it's a first step. I wanted a backdrop to take photos at home so I thought why not build one?
It's only basic but it's perfect for what I need it for - to take photos of me wearing outfits when I don't feel like doing a location shoot.
OK might have to rethink the background of my blog as you cant see where the photo ends lol. But I have at least taken a better photo of me using one of the windlight settings available on firestorm (one of the AnaLutetia ones I think.)
Edit: success!! managed to change the background to a gorgeous pink - oh I do love that colour.
