Nothing like…

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Today was¬†spent taking pictures of some of my products… all was going well until…..yep …I did it….¬†I dropped my camera right on it’s little lens…sure did…I broke it¬†…..you guessed didn’t ya?¬† It keeps saying “lens error please restart” and I am thinking now how do you do that when it won’t retract?¬† jeepers already!

In case you didn’t know.. the process for getting just the right pictures is a bit time consuming… it involves stageing….¬†oftentimes props or backdrops are used…¬†¬†good lighting is a must…¬†then you have to shoot at ¬†just the right angle and definitely¬†take more¬†than just one picture to make sure you have enough¬†photos to choose from… each product you are¬†capturing can sometimes take hours by the time you¬†get everything set up¬†and while digital cameras make it a lot easier now¬†because you can see the picture first you still may have to reshoot if they don’t turn out right…¬†From there¬†it may need some editing, resizing, ¬†framing, or enhancement as you may not get a “true” color photo… then it has to be uploaded¬†in order to place it on your site…WOW!¬†¬† It also depends on “what” you are shooting… a pillow¬†will shoot ¬†differently than a piece of fine art or ceramics… so you now you know…product takes a while to get it right…

Anyhoo, that being said I am off to beg, borrow or whatever until I can purchase a new one…Til Later!

And more frustration

Saturday, September 29th, 2007

ok these photos are not great but I am not worried about that at the moment as I noticed that I need to do both thumbnail and full picture on my website…so I am trying it out here first…the other photos I took seem to be stationary and you can not click on for closer detail ….so once again back to the drawing board on how to do this…sure hope this works… while this is a sneak peek its not a good one, so pay no attention to the actual photo itself as I was going for trying to get it right …not quality

Still learning the sizing thing… so here are a few of my lovely plants in an attempt to fine tune and make sure I am doing things right…

I am not exactly sure what this plant is called… I only know it is a perennial and will return again next year…I sure hope so¬†as it is one of my favorites…

¬†My gorgeous swedish Ivy…she of course will be brought in along with many of my other lovelies that grace¬†my outdoor living room…

Once I have a bit more time…I will take more pictures of my deck …¬†I have a¬†fabulous outdoor fireplace for those chilly fall evenings … I can’t wait to use it…some brie, bread and a nice glass of wine… all cozy and¬†snug¬†by¬†a roaring¬†fire… how¬†relaxing will that be?

Ok… so enough with the day dreaming… it’s¬†back to work for me… I need to finish up…. loads of¬†projects still need to be created (yeah like thats all going to happen in a hurry)…so until later my friends

PS:¬† I have been tagged again for 7 little tidbits about myself¬† by Jen of Pear Street Studios (another thing I need to work on is how to add links in the middle of the page)…ok so Rome was not built in a day and neither will this blog be….anyhoo getting back to the subject at hand…I promise I will do my little bits about me when I get just a bit more time!

So thats it…. I am over and out for a while…

ok¬†so I am trying to learn how to resize pictures and I ¬†hope this works¬†because the material in this photo¬†is stunning! ¬†(these pics do not do it justice)…. if¬† I manage to figure this out and¬†do it right there may be a few¬†more sneak peeks…as I am getting ready to add product this weekend…I have been hesitating because I had trouble figuring out how to make them fit¬†…¬†but wait…by jove… I think she’s got it…¬†HOOO RAY!!
