Photographing teddy bears is not the easiest thing in the world. The light in my living room is very poor, so it’s hard to get clear pictures, even when using a tripod. That’s why I had to transform my kitchen into a photo studio.
Just to remind myself, this is the setup I used to get the picture below. The aluminum foil I ended up using was a little less wrinkled than this one was though. I used it to reflect the sunshine from my kitchen window.

  3. I often grab an aluminum baking sheet from the kitchen for my light reflector. It works great and is always handy!
