Tuesday Treasure: New Photos

All my creations are treasures today, because (drumroll, please) I have finally figured out how to take good photos of my crafts! Since starting my business a little less than a year ago, I have tried many lighting, background, and camera setting configurations. I even tried buying a commercial light box (which was a massive failure — look for a review post soon). But I redid the light box I had already made, doubled the exposure on my camera settings, lowered the ISO to 50, set a custom white balance, used the superfine setting, and used a really bright light (75 watts incandescent). (It sounds complicated, but it’s really not. The main key is I had to change every setting I could on the camera.) And … Success!

Before

After

I am just thrilled with the new photos! I have even made a photo catalog of all my items now. It’s up on the new Craft Information page of this blog.
