The backdrop is some fabric I found on the cheap at IKEA last time I was there. The brighter white is a pencil skirt that I threw over a bin. And the reflector...is a reflector. REAL equipment :) One day, I hope to own a studio. Portraits aren't necessarily my thing, but I think it would be fun to be able to have friends over and take pictures, as well as do more product photography (which is what this job application is for).
