I was attempting to take some listing photos today and I was reminded of how bad I am at actually doing this. If only I could take photos that I think accurately record my items for you all to see - I would be happy. It doesn't matter how many times I read hints and tips on how to take the perfect photo, or the fact that my Grandfather was a fabulous amateur photographer, gentically and technically the skill seems to have passed me by.
In the middle of all of this, I decided to take a picture of myself as I'm notoriously shy of showing myself on the web. So here is my best 'self portrait' (with thanks from PowerPoint and Picassa):
I only wish you could have seen me standing in my lounge room making faces at the camera trying to acheive 'natural' and 'youthful' knowing that I couldn't call on airbrushing to save me!
Given my own inability with the camera, I am forever thrilled to see the work of others who seem to have a natural gift for recording moments in time. So here are a couple of my favourite photos that are currently for sale on Etsy.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do :)
I love how warm this photo makes me feel.
My favourite book as a child was The Secret Garden. To me, this IS the door to the garden.
I just love a bit of menacing architecture!
Just becasue I like red balloons and blue skies :)
