    Good morning all.

    I have some pretty nice shots of my new CB Ball Bass with background that is less than desirable. We did use some back drops, but my messy apt crept in on some.

    The ones I could crop out I did. Then I tried to take care of some in GIMP, but I am not that versed in photo editing and the pic ends up looking worse, as I jet blacked out areas.

    I would prefer to email the larger complete files.

    Thanks Much
    Shawn

    I will post a pic in a few to give an idea of how they look

    Yes we should have prepared more and thought things through, but it was a friend and free :D

    He still had more equipment than I was expecting anyway!! Two lights with umbrellas. Rack to hang backdrops from. Several backdrops.

    Sounds like the background just needs to be extended a bit, which is fairly simple. Need to see an image first to know for sure. If you are having trouble uploading an image PM me and you can email me one.

    You do realize if you make the background black those tuners are going to be crazy hard to see, yes?

    True. Hadn't really thought of that, but that pic is really more about the back and such.

    Even with cropping it is still a lil distracting

    I actually have a college education in graphic design, so I can easily fix this. and cut it perfectly and use a better background. PM me.

    I agree with Webtroll. Yeah, the friend was doing you a favor, but if you want good pics, get in a studio with some good equipment. Here's a shot a friend did for me of my bass:

    Good job!

    Maybe a bit of highlight on the tuners would give 'em a touch more separation from the drape?
