I have received several emails asking how I photograph my cards, which surprises me because I don't think I do it all that well, however, it would be rude not to share so here goes....
I take all my pictures on the breakfast table in the kitchen because it is positioned in front of double patio doors which let in a lot of natural light, this is the key, the more light, the better (for me).
This is my set up (I always take my pictures in the daytime so have no need for special lighting):
1. My Photo Light Tent is inexpensive and from Amazon, I know I am not using it correctly but this works for me.
2. My 'backdrop' is our bread bin (yes, our actual bread bin lol) but I sometimes use a sheet of colour card instead
3. I also place a sheet of colour card underneath the project being photographed.
4. I photograph my cards at an angle instead of straight on, just my preference, so it helps that I always have the fold at the top of my cards.
5. I use an inexpensive Nikon Digital Camera (I don't have the budget for anything fancy!) on the factory settings and I never use the flash, ever.
6. I edit my pictures in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, usually just cropping (not too closely around the card) and adjusting the 'Brightness and Contrast'.
And that's pretty much it, I apologise if you were expecting a masterclass, I would actually welcome any tips you may have for me :)
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day x
