I have read hear about photography and how to make photos better. I used to think, till today, that using natural light could not really make a big difference. That is till I took some photos of inventory for my square reader inventory program.
I had been using my SLR with a flash and thought it was pretty good. Then this morning--to prove to myself that it was not a big game changer--I tried photos on a desk in front of a big window. I was quite surprised at the improved lighting. Now, I a not a professional, obviously, so if I can see the difference, this is markedly better. I plan on doing all my photos this way now. It has also encouraged me to find out how to use more features of my camera. First though dh has to replace the battery door on the camera. BUT he has to wait till I get through with this batch of photos first ... which is turning out to be a bigger job that I thought.
I had photos of a lot of my work. However I am realizing that I need a totally unique SKU number for each piece every for every change I make .... either a different color tile, different back ground on the piece or different color. Those the most common things to change. It has been a long day working on that and learning about the natural light but I feel better for all the work and learning.
