I'm playing around with how I do my photography of the components. I had the tripod, camera and lights at the house, in front of a window in the studio.
But that means I'm away from the computer, where I do the uploads.
The computer is at the house.
So, if the photos didn't quite work, it's a trip in the car with the camera back to the studio.
A little inconvenient.
On Sunday, I decided to try an experiment.
I set up the photography table at the house next to the computer.
It used to be that way in Saint Louis, down in the basement studio.
That way, if the photos weren't quite right, it was easy to just roll my desk chair back over to the camera tripod setup and shoot again.
I'm not sure the lights are quite right just yet.
That's always the trickiest part.
This pewter charm has a black portrait inset in the center it's hard to get the details on the black background.
I'll have to mess with it some more.
But at least this way, re-shooting won't cause such a delay.
Shoot, upload, test.
Repeat as needed.
