I have been wanting to work more on my photography so I spent the morning online. I found a great tutorial by Christina on The Sometimes Crafter. Considering I learned how to develop film and prints in elementary school, then took classes in high school,and then was required to take photography again in art school I have retained very little. I can attribute it to the wild times at art school but I think it's just my Mommy brain and age catching up with me. Using my husbands DSLR camera has been the biggest challenge too because it's so different from the old school film cameras I had always used. The tutorial that Christina put together is just what I needed to jog my memory so I can fix my lighting issues. I work in our finished basement with minimal natural light and environmentally friendly fluorescent lighting yuck!
Here are two photos the second I took after adjusting the white balance on my camera for fluorescent lighting.
|Taken with all auto settings.|
|Taken with some settings auto, some manual, and white balance on.|
Still needs a little work. After editing in iphoto it looks much better but I would love to do less editing. Which photo looks best on your monitor?
The scrappy pile of binding will hopefully be on the quilt tonight and I will be moving onto the Sisters quilt!
