A House of Cards

Thursday, January 24, 2008

I just finished...

working on my Self-Addressed projects for January. And can I just say that I love SA! Jenn sure knows how to put together an awesome kit. Every month I say, "This one is my favorite!" I don't know how she keeps doing it month after month. This month we got to work with Collage Press Grayson Hall goodies. They were so fun and easy to work with. I love their stuff! I have a few sneaks to show. I will post the full shots as soon as they go up on the site. Until then, I am just going to tease you. ;)



Also, I wanted to answer a comment by Katie on another post. She asked if I used any special tricks when I photograph my projects. The answer is no, not really. I used a Nikon D40 camera. I photograph my projects sitting on chair covered with a white sheet in front of a large picture window that gets pretty good indirect sunlight. I do not use a flash. And I guess if there is any real "trick", I edit all of my photos in Photoshop. Usually all it takes is adjusting the brightness and contrast, and then cropping the photo. So, there you have it. Nothing too special. But I hope it helps. I did recently see a cool link to a blog that showed you how to make your own lightbox. I really need to try that. I will find the link and add it to my next post.



Well, it is late and I need to get up early to get the kids off to school in the morning. Thanks for stopping by!
