Taking Pictures




My focus the past few days is trying to take better pictures. So much to learn! Nothing is easy and everythng is so time consuming. Just wanted to post some of my recent pics for the day. Enjoy!

Aloha, I know what you mean. I've had two cameras, one broke after I stated to get comfortable to using it and figuring out how it really worked.

My second is great, I'm learning not to be afraid or intimidated of taking photos, or how I think they should turn out. The trick I've found is to take as many pics as possible of the same item, in as many ways as possible. Once I'm done, I use a photo imaging program to help clean up the imperfections. I only keep the one's that really appeals to me, and keep in mind if I'm using them to post on etsy or other sites, I try to keep one that appeals to the site as well.

The main thing is the more you take and play with your camera, the more you'll get the hang of it. I know it's time consuming as well. What works for me is I love to plan a time that I have nothing else to do, no ones around, put on some really good music, set up the shot with papers, dishes, whatever works for you (props) and just go for it. Have fun, don't make it a job. and trust me it will all turn out okay.

Sorry for the gift of gab, but your pics are lovely.
