Some of you may have noticed a change to the background on some of the photos... from our purple walls or wooden table to a blue or grey colour. Well that is because our lovely purple walls are a shit to photograph and colour correct. They change with the light and basically refuse in any way to cooperate and let us not mention the glare from the wood J

So... in the pursuit of better pictures one small slave was given an Optex Portable Photo Studio and Lighting Kit for Christmas. It is ideal for photographing small and important items, like shoes, to share on the blog.

It looks like a medium sized box, that can be shoved under almost anything for storage, and it pops up to make this handy table top studio. Light bulbs go in either side to give even lighting... unlike our place J

A camera can be mounted on the small tripod and off you go... easy Optex.

It is kind of spiffy and not too heavy. What did we do before Velcro?
