With the new light set up I've been taking much better pictures.
I love the luster of the focal pearl in this shot
and the way I can see each fiber of the felted balls and each facet of the loch rosen embellishments
The Swarovski golden shadow pendant shows up nicely as does the pearl strung necklace.
Still some things to add. I would like one of the bars that gets added to the tripod and let's the camera dangle out over the subject. I think it may be called rails or it may be a different thing (I'm a slow learner) but I can't get my camera over some of the pieces for a true top down that I would like. And then I want the vinyl that is held behind the black acrylic with a light behind it to get better lighting when I use the black. I like the black for drama on the web, but it doesn't look very good in print for my labels or directions, so I'll be using it sparingly.
Still to do is find an organization of the existing photos that I can live with. One big mass of events is not working for me when I need to scroll through a million pictures. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here, but I've yet to come up with a workable scheme. In the meantime I'm putting new pictures on the desktop which is not going to be a good longtime solution.
An unexpected beading deadline came up this week and I've been focused on it, finally sending off a package this morning. Now I have to regroup and see what I should have been doing this week. But for a beautiful Friday afternoon, I am going to sit and finish Malayna's newest sweater.
