A New Year, A New Look

You may have noticed that the blog is no longer pink! I decided to start the new year with a clean slate -- nice and white. I don't know how long that will last, but for now, there you go!

I'm also continuing my experimentation with photography. Today was an overcast day (and it's now raining) but I still had some nice light in my office. I cracked the window open and tried taking pictures without a tripod and without the macro setting. I put it on automatic, and snapped away.

I'm pretty pleased with how they came out! For the most part, I've had to do NO tweaking in PhotoShop, and the light is nice and soft. Of course, I have no idea how this will work on other days, so it will likely be an ongoing experiment.

I've also been playing around with angles -- trying to give the photos a more artistic look without being too distracting. It definitely doesn't work with everything, but some things are looking just right.

I welcome comments!


  1. Lori, I LOVE the picture with the vase and wave looking glass beads with dangles.
    The angle works so well!
    The lighting in all of the pix is perfect!

    Lori, wow, your photos look amazing. I love the danglies on the vase. What an awesome way to display them, and the Larimar jewelry looks awesome with the seashell and it being overcast on the white wood. That really reminds me of the beach. It makes me want to buy it just thinking about being at the beach, hee hee.


I appreciate comments! Thank you for contributing to the conversation.
