spring cleaning

{oh, no, not that kind. my house is a wreck!} but i’m spiffing up the etsy store with new photographs. since i first started shooting my work, i’ve learned a thing or two. like how to set a custom white balance and how to get the most from my kit lens. i’ve also got a homemade cardboard box lightbox now, built somewhat on this principle. and–oh! it makes all the difference in the world: soft light, plenty of time to focus and get lots of good shots, and i can do it anytime i want!

i used to have to wait for the {natural} light to be just right. then i would rush all my supplies to that corner of the house and shoot in a panic. i could never get as much done as i wanted, and i certainly couldn’t do it when i wanted. now i can shoot in the middle of the night or in the pouring rain, and i can leave it set up when i’m done {it’s in the garage}. happy hubby, too, cause it’s not on the dining room table.

so i wanted to share some before and afters. because while the photos are good now, some of my old ones weren’t even in focus. oh what a difference hard work makes. and some new backgrounds.

why now? well, the spring issue of sweet paul magazine is coming out this friday, and it’s got my ad in it. i’m pretty excited, even if i did misspell a word. {that’s what i get for late night photoshopping!} hop on over to his blog right now for some cute spring inspired wallpapers. and be sure to check it out friday at 8am, when the spring issue goes live!

if you get a chance, swing on by the shop and check out what has a new lease on life, as well as some new pieces i’ve recently added. if you notice that something you loved is missing, let me know. i’m clearing out some old stuff to make way for the new, so i’ll eventually get that stuff into a sale category.
