I love your set, is it new? So cute with the lighting, which is superb by the way. What kind are you using? (I ask everyone, sorry for being nosy). Well done! #506419

so cute Darcey :-) #506615

Darcey S. April 28, 2004

Thanks Theresa! Amy, I used a soft box and one studio halogen light for this photo. I have had this back drop for awhile but havent been able to hang it anywhere because its so big and I dont have much room. This is only a very small part of it. The bridge was the best find! Have you ever heard on the "Christmas Tree Shops"? Thats where I got it, only $40! I can use it my yard or indoors, well worth the money to me. #508364

Amy M. Parish April 28, 2004

I love the bridge! Does that shop have a website? I don't think I have seen one of those here. Is your halogen a continuous light? I have one too, but haven't used it much (mostly I use floods) because it is so hot and I thought I couldn't use a softbox with it. If yours is continuous, is it a special softbox??? I consistently like your lighting, so I may have to try doing what you are doing! #508376

Darcey S. May 01, 2004

Hi Amy, I guess the shop does not have a website yet. My lights are continous. They get hot, but never too hot. I have two lights with umbrellas and one soft box for light above my subjects. I usually use one umbrella light with the soft box. Hope this helps, let me know! #513965

Hi Darcey,
I also "googled" the name of the store, but no website to order from. Only store locations on the east coast. Too bad I live in the midwest. I would pay you to ship one to me!!! Ha Ha. Regarding your lights...you know I always have lighting questions :)... Do you have 2 lights or 3 lights total. Two lights with umbrellas and then another light with a softbox, or just the two lights and you use a softbox on one of the lights and the other light an umbrella. One of these days I will get some lights and stop asking you so many questions!!! Until then, I thank you for all your advice. Lisa

Hi Lisa,
I have two umbrella lights and one soft box. I usually use the soft box with one umbrella light, it gives plenty of light. The soft box light I always use for light over my subjects. If you're really interested I can look into shipping one of those bridges to you, let me know. Darcey #516849
