Really beautiful with great detail and a great perspective. Just curious how you get the white background - do you photoshop the background out or do you shoot against a white board? Thanks. #1498159

Thank you Marcy! I've been sitting on this one for awhile not sure whether to enter it or not! Yes, I do use a whiteboard. It eliminates any unwanted background distractions and it's easy to select in my software to brighten it, change color or add textures. Plus, I'm not that good at cloning stuff out of pics so this is easier :) #10417502

Great advice -thanks! I'm not that good at cloning either and I certainly don't have the patience for it. Your way is much easier and smarter. #10417531
