Metal Pix

Ahhhh......loving the new camera. Didn't get much time to play today but just enough to get a few pictures. Still inside at my desk- but here they are:

These are some sterling stackables that I've been wearing on my thumb for the last month. I love these. The hammered texture makes them glimmer in the light. More of these in process & they will be added to Etsy.

And these are charms that are in process for swaps. Not quite finished.....just had to take pictures for practice sake.

Hey Anne Marie......recognize these backgrounds?

Better Pictures

I'm on my way to better pictures. As soon as I really figure out how to use the camera. Look at these earrings:

Now, this picture was taken with them sitting on my desk. Using the overhead lights, macro setting & the flash. Because it had only been 5 minutes since I opened the book & turned it on for the first time. So I haven't experimented with any white balance settings, or used the light tent, or- gotten to the page in the manual that shows me how to turn the flash off. But, this is the same pair of earrings that I posted on June 7th. (scroll down for the ugly pictures) I was shocked & excited about the detail in the stones- you can't even see that with your naked eye.....well I can't! I never put them up for sale because the pictures were so bad. Originally I was going to keep them, but ya know....gotta support my buying habits somehow!

So.....I'm on my way. And so very happy about it. Just gotta figure out my new toy! Woo- hoo!
