Seems like everyone is showing off their craft space these days..So I swallowed my pride and wanted to show you some of the places where I work in the house. Today, I'll show you my indoor area. Here is where I have been taking my photos during the winter and on those rainy, crazy days these past few months...try not to laugh..;-P
That solid earthy background is a 6 foot sheet of wrapping paper that my daughter used the white part of for a life size drawing she created in the 7th grade, I "reuse" it and use the brown side. My room window seems to be the only room in my house where I can get some decent light and shadow. So I just prop up the paper against the window and use this gorgeous stoneware cup to hold it in place.
Using the cup in my pictures was by accident, I needed a prop to place my necklaces against and I like the way it looked against the paper ..then I tried earrings..and the rest was history. This cup is actually a "throwaway" that was handmade by an Etsy Artist... she says this piece didn't set right so the cup is not safe to drink from ..but its safe to use for other things , so I made it into a prop, pencil/pen holder and I may make it into some pendants in the future...maybe.
I find the best light is between 12- 2 pm here. the only problem is the sun gives of a haze when I use my black display bust, and it's also the time my son starts to get cranky and needs a nap so I am lucky if I can get in an hour of light time. My camera has issues leaving a "slight snowy" look in the pics sometimes.."the snow" is when the camera is over pixlelating.
So that's it....Where do you take photos inside ?? Please share;-)
