Lighting for Photos
You might be wondering... "Is she taking pictures on top of her washer?!" Yup. I have struggled for years trying to get good light without any abnormal colors. In order to take good photos of art, or I guess anything that sells on line, a light tent or good natural light is needed. Our wee abode is surrounded by trees which block a lot of light & so many pics would have a greenish tint. I have tried every window in our home with only modest success. Normally much photo editing is needed to capture the colors accurately.
But just recently I discovered that on top of the washer is THE best place for photos, I get lots of natural light without any green tint to the photos. It's close to the back door with a large window which gives me perfect light for photos of my small paintings. Plus the white enamel and my handmade white card stock screen reflect
the light and the colors perfectly!!
Oh the paintings... the upper left is practically finished, I just have to paint the sides. The large has the most work left to do..it's a new color palette for me. And the smallest painting still has a way to go before I consider it finished.
