Sorry things have been a bit quiet around here. I’ve been taking the opportunity the hint of spring in the air has prompted and been clearing out and sorting my craft room. One of the most noticeable differences to the room has been from taking down the curtains. The amount of light flooding the room since I took them down is amazing! So I’ve been experimenting with the new found light to take my card photos. Normally I take my cards to a different room to photograph, trailing back and forth with the bits and pieces I use to set up a photo. If this new set up works then I will save myself a lot of fussing. What do you think?

There’s a few more shadows cast but I think the overall photo is clear and more ‘realistic’ if that makes sense. One of the comments I’ve had in the past is that my photos are too light so perhaps the extra shadowing will define the elements more. However, when I asked my husband and daughter which of two photos they preferred they liked the one taken in the old set up. I’d be interested to have an honest poll (I can take it!) on whether you prefer this or my older photos and are they too light?
