It's actually scrapbook paper.

My biggest problem is I can't get shocking pink so show up properly without editing, and it drives me bonkers! I use the right lights (true daylight, not the normal store daylight bulbs, but the actual true daylight, the right "temperature/color"), a light box (or not sometimes, tried both). And, I don't have other light in the room that isn't the same "color". I've even done the manual white settings on my camera. If anyone has any magic bullets for it, let me know!

I use my Iphone and edit in Picasa. In Picasa I crop, and adjust light and shadow. They are not pro but it works until I get money together for a DSLR and a Class on how to use it.

I use a cell phone (iPhone5) & natural light to take ALL my pictures & they're better than some taken w DSLR cameras! PicMonkey is my BFF when it comes to the very little editing I do!

Thanks! I take all of my pictures under natural light ... I have a huge sliding door I set it up my hair piece and shot it with my phone, I get the best light between 1230pm-2pm because of the way my house is facing.

The phone I use, iPhone 5 has an amazing camera, one of the best in the market so it makes it super ez to take great shots every time.
