Hello, something a little different from me today. One of the things I really want to do this year is get better at my photography skills.I was very that my parents and husband clubbed together an bought me a Canon Camera for my birthday back in October. I have used it a lot since then but mostly on the auto settings and now I wanted to start learning a little more about all the settings.
First of all I thought I'd show you where I take pictures. This is a light tent that I bought from 7 day shop, it was quite inexpensive and really helps soften harsh lighting and shadows. I use it with natural light from the window as well as with my two day-light lamps at night. It does come with different backdrops that you can Velcro inside but I tend to leave it empty.
Here you can see how I position the tent- it sits on my window sill and I also have a day-light lap to the side and one from above. Inside I have a sheet of A3 white card mounted on foam board and as a background I have 2 pieces of wood patterned scrapbook paper- again mounted on foam board. I set my tripod up in front go the scene- I usually have it directly inline with the card or slightly below it. I'm fairly happy with this set (its a bit of a squeeze as I only have a tiny room) but I still want to work on the light setting within the camera in order to give a "whiter" look to my cards.
I hope you found this of some interest- I will share other details over the next few weeks.
