Go on Craigslist and look for some cool, funky chairs. I look both under the antiques and furniture categories. We got an antique one that is a huge hit and paid $150 for it. Another we bought at a re-purposed furniture shop for $50. Remember, you can always reupholster or paint the chair so the frame and style are the most important considerations really.

my local craigslist is just sad, theres never anything worth getting on there, and when there is they want two times what its actually worth.

the antique stores around here are basically garbage cans with doors, most of them is just junk *and priced similarly to craigslist* I think yard sales are probably my best bet, thankfully those are starting soon. :D

KCMO, can you share a pic of the antique chair? :)

I wonder how much reupholstering normally costs? I'm not looking to make a huge investment here. :D I still have to many things on my to get list. Thankfully I should be able to get the camera and flash soon. :D

It depends on the fabric. Some stuff is more like vinyl once painted. Other stuff is scratchy

Great pics max!

I got a question, would you touch up someone's double chin with out them asking for it? I have been doing more of that stuff with my beauty portraits since they are not shy about asking me to take a few pounds off of them. Now that I'm getting back into senior portraits since its spring, I'm just wondering. :)

Best thing to do is to not shoot a double chin....have them bring their chin forward and down. You can also aid its removal with the right lighting.

getting the lighting is not always possible when doing an outside portrait, and it seems no matter how many times I have them move their chin, it inevitably goes back to their natural position. So in the situations where you have a double chin captured, do you treat or leave it? :)

Random question for you all, what is a better option to buy? Canon 580exII or the 600ex? I noticed adorama had a sale so I did a search, they dont even have the 580 but they do have the 600 for about the same price as the 580 on bh.

I would get the 600. The radio control is the future. The 580 is discontinued I believe.

I just bought the Photixx odin system to use with my speedlites. So I am just beginning to experiment with off camera ettl/HSS. It should be an interesting journey. I love that I can control the power in manual mode from my camera. So far manual is how I have been using the system.
