I would add a word of caution about homemade softboxes. Lights can get VERY hot and any flammable materials (ie foam core, cardboard, etc) that is too close to the heat source can cause a fire. It's not something I would be brave enough to try, for that reason.

Thanks Michele, I won't be trying to make one, just not that handy anymore.


Forgot to add, Clea came over to try on the dress today and try out some ideas for pose and accessories. She is absolutely beautiful! I'm getting really excited about this one. I've got to finish Noah first although there isn't much left to do.
