ideas

theres this kind of thing,

or this

but i think if you put a sheet in front of a bright window, took the photo in front of the window, and could do the rest of the editing in a programme like photoshop elements which is fairly cheap around €80, as long as you took the photo right then youd probably get good results on a budget.
