Overkill for Craigslist...

My dad is getting ready to sell his bike to get something with a bigger backseat for my mom. That didn't sound good, a more comfortable back seat for my mom. Anyways he wanted me to come over and take some pictures so he could post it on craigslist. Unfortunately I am a bit crazy and went a little overboard. I have had this idea of making a really big softbox for nice diffused light. I ended up getting 2 flat twin sheets and sewing them together. I cobbled it together with 2 lightstands and some flimsy pvc. It did give nice diffused light. Don't think anyone on craigslist will appreciate the quality of pictures but it was fun to shoot. ~Erik
If you interested in buying the bike leave a comment. A few more shots here.

That's a sweet effect! I never would have thought of that! It looks great like always. When I come up this summer I want you to take some head shots for Cookie Lee if you don't mind. I'm sure you have some sort of tool to make me look like a 15 year old again.

I could almost guarentee that would be a slight overkill for Craig's list. That will think it is a fake ad or something. A scam for sure! I guess that was in mom and dad's garage, I have never seen it before. Looks nice

You better believe that I sewed them together. I was student of the month in home economics in junior high...
