Fabulous! I would love to try this with my grandson. Did you use clear plexi on black background? or black plexi? and how big a piece do I need? #5423559

Jenny B. 2/21/2008 2:15:16 PM

Chubby buns get me every time! Plexi glass you say? I have never heard of that. *NOTE TO SELF* must learn more! Check back to see if you answer the question in the comments above mine. Oh, how you inspire, thank you;0 #5527699

O.K. so I hit SUBMIT twice, OPPS! Please forgive, LOL. #5527705

Hayley J. Hamlin 2/22/2008 6:50:49 AM

Thank you all for the comments on this. Loraine I am SO sorry I have not gotton back to you. This is the one question I get asked the most and I forget sometimes who I responded to and who I didn't. This is just clear plexi on black background. I got the smallest peice Home Depot had becuase I am an on-location photog so I have to be able to travel with it. The black material needs to be behind it and underneath it. If you have any other questions feel free to email me :) And again I am sorry...thanks Jenny for asking again to remind me :) #5531043

Loraine Ehresman 2/22/2008 7:47:09 AM

Thanks Hayley & Jennifer, I had forgotten too, better late than never. I'm off to Home Depot ... maybe not right this moment but at least before my next shoot! #5531321

Loraine Ehresman 2/22/2008 2:18:24 PM

Do you use natural light for ALL your work? Do you use a reflector? If so, what kind? soft white? soft gold? I'm trying to decide whether to get a single reflector or a five-in-one. #5532828

Hayley J. Hamlin 2/22/2008 5:39:40 PM

Natural light only :) #5534775

I love all the different reactions you get when you place a baby on a piece of plexi glass. They are so fun to watch and no two children will ever give you the same reaction which always makes it a fun and new experience. This little guy had so many adorable reactions!! I took 3 of my favorite shots and combined them to create this keepsake for his room :)
