How's that working out?
Pretty good, actually. But it was my Facebook teacup project that really got me rolling this past week or so.
|The cup that started it all--the one I gave away.|
I took the photo at right in my dining room. It was sitting on a tiny table on top of a linen tablecloth. But my friend Dan takes magnificent shots of his beautiful sculptures. They're studio quality. We asked how he did it, and he explained that he does them on his coffee table with a foamcore display board and another piece of foamcore under the pieces. He does have a better lighting set up than me. I cannot get my flash to synchronize properly. It's off to the photo store to see about that. I may even buy one of those photographic umbrellas to soften the light ...but that'll only happen after some major research.
(Are you bored yet?)
Youtube videos, where you can find tons of fun things and tutorials based upon just about anything. (I have also learned to pack a suitcase like a butler!) Okay, so the tutorial told me way more than I needed about macros, etc., but after watching it a couple of times I picked up just enough knowledge to do what I want. And now ... I'm sharing my teacup collection on Facebook, and eventually on Pinterest.
I'm putting up a cup a day. If you'd like to join me (and tell me about your teacups), come on over to my Facebook page. Just click this link.
