For the past few days I have been working on new pictures. I have a 6 year old camera, but sadly, I don't think I can blame the age on the pictures. I have a light box downstairs (that I made out of a cardboard box) that I use sometimes, but I prefer the light from my sliding glass doors.
Here is what they looked like before I edited the picture. You can see how bright the sun was by the upper left hand corner. I used a piece of white paper to cover the light coming in.
I often get a blue cast around my picture.
Here they are after editing. The colors are pretty accurate, but the pink is more vibrant than what is showing in the picture.
Another problem I have is bright colors. I can make the background light, but it makes the object too washed out.Here is the picture right after I took it.
This is right after editing. It is so bright, that you can't really see the details.
This is my new Koi soap.
