    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers."

photography backdrop stand diy.

IMG_1.jpg

for awhile now, i have been photographing outfits and objects in almost every room of little green in hopes of finding the most agreeable background. ask any blogger and they will almost always tell you of at least one favourite location to shoot photos within their homes. my sweet little photography spot is in little green’s living room. however, because it also doubles as an entrance way and home office, it can get pretty cluttered. also, because one wall has been painted black, and the other painted black and white, my subjects can quite easily become overshadowed by paint colour. my goal? to create a backdrop stand. :-)))

i began by purchasing two inexpensive clothing racks. the simpler, wider, and taller, the better. i got these for a really great price!

next, i tracked down two heavy curtains. i initially was going for white, but when i came across this particular reversible pair, i had to buy them. i thought that it would be a great way to have two different backdrop colours in one.

time to assemble.

after the racks were set up, i was ready to hang the curtains.

    Great idea! That’s cool that the curtains had fit the clothes racks, cuz the racks looked pretty thick. I love racks. Although they make clothes look messy to hang on, it’s easier to pull clothes off of, than from the closet.

    • they’re about 5 and 1/2 feet high. ideally, i would like them to be higher, but i plan on putting them up on boards when i have taller specimens to photograph. i’m just a shortie. ;-)

    the curtains will probably require ironing before you can start shooting, right? i absolutely love the idea and may or may not steal it someday :D thanks for a great DIY!

    • they do need it, but followers of my blog know that i like everything to be natural and work itself out (ie. wrinkles ;-)))).

      i embrace the imperfect, it only makes things that much more interesting and unique!!
