It's official. I hate taking photo's of my work. I actually think that it takes me longer to take a decent photo than it does to design and make the thing!! Lighting, position, outside, inside, background...................It's amazing and very, very frustrating just how good or bad your work can look by slightly varying the above. Here are some pics of my very frustrating day trying to put together some great "selling" photo's for my MadeIt store. I'm no perfectionist, but i refuse to put anything up there that doesn't actually look like the real thing. But after today's annoyances, i think that unless i hire a professional photographer, it just 'aint gonna happen!!
Outside with a plain backdrop
Inside under electric lighting. Supposedly the worst way to photo, but seems to be the best of the bunch..???
