I am literally sitting on hundreds of items that I have not been able to photograph and list because of the lack of sun.
Many times I have been tempted to begin investing in the thousands of dollars for photography equipment but I am enamored of the soft, sweet hazy light of the morning. It feels better suited to the work I do than the cold, white/gray gallery type style.
And it is much more fun to buy beads.
|This is not my photo, I just can't find where I got it!|
It can be hard to find it here in Missouri. Some days start with the perfect light and by the time you are all set up, the sun comes out full force and creates harsh shadows.
Other times it is perfect!
Sometimes you do what you have to do to get the job done.
This photo still makes me laugh.
It is from the time I was working on the book Handmade Underground Jewelry and I had deadlines to meet.
The sun disappeared after I set up and I sat there on the edge of my bathtub, waiting and hoping it would come back. It never did.
But when the sun does come in for me, it is wonderful. There is a great reward in having the best picture ever for an item.
But, guess what? In our new house, I get the Florida Room as my studio! I will be able to have a table set up and ready to go for when the perfect light arrives which will be waaaaay more often because Florida is known as the Sunshine State!
