P.S. I Love You

Thursday, February 12, 2015

 
Hey Guys! I'm still experimenting with my 'lightbox' for photographing my cards at night.  I asked for some suggestions on Instagram and got some really great feedback that I thought I'd share with you. 
 
 
One suggestion was to try using day light bulbs instead of the OttLite bulbs I currently use.  I thought that was a great, inexpensive option to try and I think I'll purchase some this weekend and try it out.  Another suggestion pointed me in the direction of a My Favorite Things post, by their Design Team, where they discuss their individual photography set ups.  Find that post {HERE}   Thanks, Jacquie, for the link!
 
 
Another  suggestion was investing in a Foldio,  a pop-up studio with battery powered lights attached.  And finally, Yana suggested the most expensive option which is to invest in an external flash.  Her photos are beautiful, so it's definitely a consideration.
 
 
For today's card I mixed WP9 Unforgettable with PTI Love Songs.  They work so well together!  I created my ombre' circle with 3 colors of WPlus9 PURE COLOR Dye Ink: Little Piggy, Sweet Gelato, Cranberry Crush.  I've also added new projects to the Friday Inspiration File for this week {#206} 
Thanks so much for coming by!

  4. Oh, so adorable--love the pink! I still have problems with lighting even though hubby bought me two lights when I was doing pet portraits. I think they're probably too large and I struggle with getting them set correctly.

  11. That's an adorable card! I have an external flash and I bounce it off the wall or ceiling for low light situations. It does make a much more natural looking light!
