Well it gets harder and harder to think of a theme for the comp so I came up with this idea after looking on e.bay. There are some terrible pictures on there even in the photography section.
So that's why I came up with this idea. I have allways thought that first impressions / presentation are the key to selling anything....

Forgot to add that I looked on e.bay for " portable studio backgrounds " and one I viewed looked like it had been put through a mangle but, as was described by the owner  " had only been used once and the creases should come out with ironing "......... :legit:

So do you want us to do a really good ad agency standard marketing shot, or take the p*ss? I'm easy. Obviously option #2 would be easier. Or maybe not, now I come to think of it.  ::)

I know what you mean Howard with your second suggestion... :2funny:... but lets try and impress, like I said and I quote myself  " the picture alone will sell the item " .  I know Jim has one of those mini studio things and bones should be able to put his ring flash to use and even Alan a keen e.bayer has said he will have a go. This might even be one to tempt Jonathan to participate.. :tup:
I have not a clue what to do yet !... thinking of a theme was hard enough.... :doh:.... :legit:

Camera Not Included

Dave did say I could put my bracket to good use :)

Is there an entry thread? If not this seems a good idea, just have one thread for both.





Edit: please dont enter this to the poll, I just realised it was taken before the start date.

With this theme, I would really hope that you don't put the wife on eBay.  ;D :D
