terrible photos!




I'm not a photographer and surely some of the hardest things to take photos of are 'products'!!

At the moment my house is full with cards and prints and so on, but taking proper photos and putting them onto Folksy is turning out to be an impossible task...

Getting things framed and taking them to galleries?  Yes, I can do that.
Wrapping prints in cellophane and packaging up for the post?  No problem.
Coming up with ideas and designing new prints?  Trickier, but great fun.

Photos of things I want to sell?  Well, today's a bit cloudy, so they won't come out quite right and first I need a couple of panel pins the right distance apart, and some nice bull dog clips and maybe some fancy twine and some clean wooden clothes pegs and something pretty to decorate around them - maybe some bunting - and it's not clear yet how to arrange groups of cards together, but some kind of nice cover or tablecloth may be needed...maybe I should wait until I've redecorated the lounge so that the background colour is just right too...

If ever there was an image made for me it is this one...but then I am starting to be able to tell the difference out of practice if nothing else.
