Serving Up Sherbet

Some non-caloric treats! Look luscious, not edible. Making them occupies my hands and helps me keep the edibles out of my mouth. :) Continuing to work on the photography. Have re-established a photography area in a different corner of the "great room." Trying to get diffused lighting. Better, but still a ways to go. Am happy with the soap dish prop - presents the felt beads in a new way.

Also neat for soap. The soap inside this nice wool coat is even raspberry scented.



Elsie, the dress form, has been pressed into service as a model for wearable pieces. Getting too much light on the one side - maybe need to tape a piece of white paper in the window. Will try that next photo session. Thanks for reading.

Thanks Sue. It has taken a while, but have found a wonderful source for hand dyed merino roving in great colors. Glad you like them too.

Re: taking pictures. I found black velveteen works really well for a backdrop for picture taking. My friend Kate used black poster board for hers. Only when I am photographing a really dark item do I ever like taking a picture against a light background.
The biggest problem with a light background is the item always casts a shadow. Using a black background solves that problem.
