Revealing how I made my current avatar.

Revealing how I made my current avatar.

Posted to Flickr on 24 January 2009.

I’m only posting this photo because so many people have asked how I made my "JD in a white box" avatar.

The "studio" was my kitchen, with a black sheet as a backdrop hanging from the cabinets. I wish you could see the Lucky Charms boxes I used to prop up the poster board!

I pulled this image into Photoshop where I created the rest of the white framing.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
