Struggling With Photos
I have never been very good at taking pictures or videos for that matter. I remember when my girls were small, we had a video camera, I would take videos of them learning to ride their bicycle, or when on vacations, etc. Well I never could watch and enjoy them because I was so wobbly when taking them. The videos would make me sea sick )-: and my pictures weren’t much better.
Struggling With My Jewelry Photos
Well today I am still struggling with taking great pictures, just with a different subject now, jewelry and woodcrafts. I believe that I have improved considerably, but still not where I want to be. Well the other day I received a comment on one of my not to good photos with a link to a photography blog “Photography Central” that might help me. Knowing that I need to improve I went to check it out, and I found some wonderful tips and videos.
I sure hope one of these days I will be able to take beautiful pictures like these at Photography Central.

If your camera isn’t capable of providing adequate magnification in macro mode, then there is a lens called the Little BigShot that you can purchase to help take better closeup shots. It won’t fit my new camera lens )-: So I am going to have to dig out my old camera, maybe one of the lens will fit it. Anyway check out the site for some great tips.
