Designs by Gollum is hosting Foodie Friday and having a Foto contest.
On a recent post she talked about her photography skills ,which are excellent. She said they weren’t good until she became a Darling Baker, which made me laugh. First , I was a Darling Baker, and my skills have a long way to go. Secondly, I knew her before then, and her pics were just fine!
I think it is an art, and she is an artist. She has wonderful lighting, and that is a big part of it.
Anyway, she got many good comments and suggestions.
I am not one to use the light box..dragging foam board around and clamping lights up takes the fun out of it for me. It would be like telling our friend Bill of Affordable Accoutrements to use paper plates and plastic forks..:)
Of course if you are doing it to earn a living, you have to do all those things..
As one of the comments to ML said , we get better with practice…White balance, etc..all Greek to me!
All of the above pictures were from previous posts, so they are my Flashback Friday with Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet.
Tonight I have something very simple…
Milk and oatmeal cookies, anyone?
As for the pictures, I like being surprised when I get one that comes out well! And as Yvonne at Stone Gables said, just make sure the laundry basket is out of the picture! :)
I don’t have that feature that blurs the background..but look, I covered my switch plate with the same fabric I used to make the window treatments, formerly called curtains..:)
Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie is having a Saturday weekly meme..My Favorite Things..Stop by and get the details at her blog…
Thanks for visiting, and I will keep working on improving! I have a 4 yo Canon Power Shot A610. Monique helped me learn to turn off the flash and use the macro mode. The book made me feel like I was reading directions on brain surgery! :)
