New Light Box

I have a new light box. It makes taking pictures a doddle and is multi-functional. My husband calls it A Bath. I call it A Shower. Talking Beads call it A Light Box!

I have heard of using the bath but was very sceptical about it. A few days ago the girls on Facebook advised me to try using the bath as my backdrop but because I have an unstable back I decided to use the hand basin to very good effect.

Today I decided to have a go with the bath! I gave it a quick clean and popped my necklace stand in and crouched down and took a few snaps. Voila! Here is the result.

This is now listed in my Folksy shop.

My husband will think I am mad, cleaning the bath every day!

With a little help from my Friends

Yesterday I asked for help with my photos from the lovely Facebook Group I have joined (thank you Nicole). I was telling them that I was not happy with my photos and they suggested I should have the same background for my main pictures in my Folksy Shop. Lifestyle type pictures for the additional images.
They also suggested I use the bath as my background and that I may find the macro button to take the photos would give me more detail. I normally use the Intelligent Auto setting, which makes me smile as I like to think one of us is intelligent!

Anyway here are two pictures.

First one: In the hand basin ! which is under the window. Flash and bathroom lights off.

Second picture: Still in hand basin, flash off, lights off and Macro setting on.

Very interesting! I would not like you to think that my hand basin is blue, I am old but not retro....
Bye for now.
