Adventures in Picture Taking, Part 2

Posted on Wednesday, May 30, 2012

I've been doing a lot of picture taking the last few days and trying to edit the photos the best I can.  

(Pearberry Chunk Candles, 8 ounce and 16 ounce.)

(Pearberry Chunk Candle, 8 ounce Jar.)

(Hibiscus Chunk Candle, 16 ounce Jar.)

Trying my hand at making the white background work with my candles.  I think I'm starting to get the hang of it, but there is definitely more work to be done.


The adventure of Picture Taking...

Posted on Saturday, May 19, 2012

I never thought taking pictures of my candles would be that difficult...
I figured, it would be an easy thing to get a shot of, especially after all the kitty pictures I've tried (and failed) to take over the years. (Boy, was I wrong!)

But, I am learning and trying new things...

Now, they are no where near perfect, but I am pretty proud of them anyway! (These pictures are tons better then the previous ones I've taken.) 
Listening to the veteran sellers on Etsy has shown me, that natural light cannot be beat!  So, it looks like I'll be heading outside a lot  to get some decent photos of my candles!


Yes, I am still here...

I know it has been a little while since I've been around, but that is due to being very busy!  I've been hard at work making new candles and getting all my 'business' ducks-in-a-row!  Things are coming along, though and I am having a lot of fun in this new adventure.

I thought I would share a couple photos, well I'm poking my head in...

These are two photos of a candle my husband created, called "Gabe's Man Scents, Vol. 1".  It is a very musky scent, with a hint of lemon in the background. (I actually really like it.)


Lastly, a picture taken when I was working on the 'Blueberry Muffin' candles. (These candles have proven to be very popular.  Everyone that has tried one just loves it!)
