Photo Appreciation

I have a new appreciation for photography! Sure, I've taken pictures of the kids and stuff, but I've never taken pictures of items for a specific using lighting and angles and props and stuff. It's a lot harder than I thought. I've never tried to take pictures of things - using the different camera settings, like macro. I've always just taken pictures of the family and events (on the auto setting, I might add) - for my scrapbooks.

Well, the reason we only have a couple of items listed on our web shop for right now is because I know that pictures are important, and I want to have better pictures showcasing what we're going to have on our site. So...I built a homemade lightbox! Hhhhmmmm...Now I need to practice, practice, practice and play around with the lighting, the angles, and all that good stuff. Wish me luck. As soon as I get some better pictures, I'll be posting a few more items!

Gosh, I think of all the pictures that I've seen and admired. Now that I'm trying to take close-ups and shots of items and not people, I have much more appreciation for that beautiful photography.
