Thank you for the opportunity, I sent a couple to the email address, I hope you like them. I’m really working on making the photos as light and bright as I can, do you have any suggestions for lighting that are inexpensive? I have a very inexpensive point and shoot camera. Thanks!
Yes, Definitely! Here is a post on our sister-site, Budget101.com that shows how we take our photographs. We built a small “studio” to create an inexpensive lightbox for photos.
It’s made a huge difference in the quality and lighting of our photographs.
