It was so nice to see these colors just find their way to each other. Okay, the lighting is not the best, but I did use a white background, the window, overhead lights- two of them, and also two mirrors to reflect the light. This state is not called the Sunshine State!
The pretty blues, aqua, gold, greens, pink, and silver all made me want to find a boardwalk or an aquarium. I'm seeing tropical fish, tropical flowers, tropical drinks, whoopsie, oh- you got me! The beads are from what, I don't know, they are just in my stash of all kinds of bits and pieces dreaming about being used in a little project.
For taking better photos, I had earlier made a lightbox from a gallon water jug. It worked well with my other camera, (which is kaput) but this new camera has a bigger lens and the opening in the jug isn't big enough for this lens. (It was enlarged and didn't work well.)
I see a lightbox project in my future. It's going to have to be foldable, since there isn't any place to store something all set up and ready to use all of the time. Do you have a photography tip for little items and want to share?
