Cardmaking photography tips


No new card to share with you today, but some good news; I was featured over at 2 Sketches 4 You as the Card of the Week. :) Yay! Thanks gals!
Here is the card...

...which can be found in this post.

Since I'm not sharing a new card with you today, I thought I share with you some photography tips. Now, I'm no professional, but this is what I do...

Get a bench and drape a white cloth over it...

(yes, this card is the one I will be showing you in a couple days ;))

For differant backgrounds, I do these...

Use 12x12 scrapbook papers...

Use another white cloth....

But the key to good photos is lighting - I take pictures by our large windows..

The one other thing that helps is a little editing. Some cameras (like mine!) just can't catch all the good light, so I use Picnik on Flikr to add the missed light.

Not the fanciest way to take decent photos, but definitely the cheapest! ;)

Okay gals, I got some sad and good news for you...

Lesley, one of our DT members over at SSC, has stepped down. :( She will be missed...

The good news is, we have a couple more spots for the new DT! Here is the blog post to go to...I would suggest just e-mailing us at sscraftsdt@gmail.com - seems to me the simplest way. ;)

So excited to see what everyone comes up with! :)

Thanks for poppin' by!
