I won, yay!!

I put forth some information about the deal that was going on at Artfire and by doing so, I won an awesome prize.  I won a new tabletop photo studio!  Wooot!  Holla!

It arrived quite a while ago, but I had, um, issues. 

You see, I set it up, and took all sorts of pictures of it (yes, picture of the stuff that's supposed to help me take pictures) and immediately broke one of the special bulbs from the really awesome lights.  Before I ever turned it on.

Aren't I brilliant?

So I was a little upset and starting packing everything away.  And then when it came time to tear down the actual the tents, I could not for the life of me figure out how to get these pop up things unpopped!  I was turning them every which way and pushing and pulling.  I brought up the instructions from the website and that didn't help.

And that's when the pregnancy hormones kicked in.  Swear words spewed, tears flowed, tents got thrown across the room, it was pretty ugly.  Full on hormonal melt down.

When the husband finally came home, I threw the tents at him and made him do it.  Once everything was nice and packed, I hid them under the china cabinet until I could look at it all again.

I braved the equipment today and took some pictures that I'll be using to post some new products this week.

So now that I'm over it, just want to say Thanks Artfire!  I love my new studio!

This photo has not gone through any retouching yet.  I'm not even sure it's going to need any cuz thanks to the new lights, the whites are actually white and it seems pretty evenly lit to me!

Congrats on winning! I really need to see about getting on of those tents. I just don't know what to do with this Washington light.
