a seamless background is seconds away for you-all i did was buy four white poster board at fred meyer's for $0.59 each and taped them together. then you lean it up against the wall so there is a curve. then with a little patch tool, liquefy effect, and exposure adjustments you can have photos that look like they were taken in a professional studio! i am out of control, i am already planning for our next bedroom poster board shoot!

What a great idea. I have been thinking about buying a seamless background, but will try this first for sure. I may have to come back and ask about liquify effect.

ohmygosh her eyes are incredible. I also love the picture where stella is trying to push her sister out of the picture. Or maybe its just an affectionate pat. haha

I love this, too, but I'm a little confused. Is one posterboard on the floor and another against the wall? And then you post edit the seam out?

PS- For how long can one claim mama-mush brain? Because that's what I'm going with. :)

Hey thanks for the follow! Just checked out your blog and wow - I am smitten for these pictures. I have been dying to learn how to take a decent photo of my little one, and will certainly try this trick! Not sure I'll have such a good end result though (but at least my subject is good lookin' as is.) :)

I'm from WA also... grew up in Kent! In Boston now, but miss Fred Meyer! Ha!

@erin, i taped four piece together and then 'propped' it up against the wall so that there was a little bit of a curve between the wall and floor. then i use the patch tool in photoshop and select the seam and pull it just to the side to fill it it with it's surrounding area. then for the sides if you can see off the boards i use the liquefy tool to stretch the side of the board to the edge of the photo frame.
