I got a couple of recticel 25mm boards from Jewsons:

Covered them in lining paper using wallpaper paste, painted one side with blackboard paint, the other side with white matt emulsion, and followed this video:

The hardest part was finding the 3" gaffa tape in the UK, seems its only really available in the US, I managed to get some from a German company in the end.

EDIT: Took this while under construction:

Nice, but I would raise the light about a foot.

Understand where you are coming from, but now it is too bright on the central part of the body.

Thanks but I didn’t post the setup for feedback/critique, it looks good to me and I achieved my goal. ;-)a

Lol. I don’t mean to come off rude and everyone is entitled to their own opinion so it’s all good.

I tend to agree that if a person is not asking for feedback than it's best to say nothing. Most threads are just for sharing.

That's true ... but a thread set up on the basic premise that you show both the shot and how it was set up absolutely cries out for comment and discussion. Otherwise ... what's the point of it?

I think, if you submit to this thread, you should expect comment ... constructively and politely given, of course, but not necessarily universally positive.

If a posting is in "JUST KIDS 20##... Let's see them grow and learn", it's a different matter. Unless you have something nice to say about an image of someone's son or granddaughter, perhaps just keep it to yourself!

OTOH, if you're willing to accept a "Great shot!" comment, you should also be willing to accept a, "You cut her ear in half!" comment, no?

Personally, I have absolutely no problem with that. In fact, I don't have a problem with well-delivered critique anywhere on POTN. I just think discretion is the better part of valour when it come to people's children. It's just too easy to stray into territory where people feel you're remarking on their 'fat ugly baby' ... even if all you are saying is that they might have considered a less wide-angled lens and not shot quite so close.

It’s all perspective...

I did not intend to start a debate but from my stand point the user posting the image is the artist. I see a lot of people throwing in comments throughout this thread masked as CC when in the end it doesn’t benefit anyone. No one learns or improves their photos from some of the unwarranted comments.

This is the internet and people will always state their opinion no matter what, and implications are not the easiest to read especially from strangers.
