The Evolution Of Pictures

Thank god for DIGITAL camera! I
can't imagine taking tons of pictures, waiting an hour for developing, and then finding out that you have to start all over!
I took advantage of a sunny day yesterday and took some pictures of some of my products.
Picture #1 was my first "goof"! I'm not sure why, but the flash went off. Now, some take great pictures with their flash, but my flash pictures NEVER turn out...as you can see!





Here is a better picture. I take all my
pictures on my kitchen table. This area gets indirect sun and I find the light very easy to work with. I try to take pictures from afar so that I can crop them as needed. The background is a sheet of scrap booking paper.

















The magic of cropping!





















Added some light! I usually use Picassa
for my editing. It's easy to use, although limiting.





















Ta da! The evolution of pictures!
