But I didn’t mind.
It gave me a chance to primp and photograph my stock of tweeties, ready for the Vintage Playground showcase, coming up on 1st September.
I’m not totally sure I’m happy with the results, but I always feel like that when I photograph things.
I kind of know how I want stuff to look, but actually turning the vision into reality is another matter.I’m always one to suck up any photography tips. Mollie Makes shared some good basics recently.
And Etsy was generous enough to give guidance on smartphone photography, which is handy if you’re as glued to your phone as I usually am.
But my favourite tips were the ones I stumbled upon from Apartment Therapy, which tell you how to make a mini photo studio on the cheap. Those last three words being crucial, of course.
So this was my final submission to Vintage Playground…
And I wish I had room to name and number all the tweeties, rather than just four of them. (Though the notes accompanying the photo will give the rest of the details).
It seems I’m not the only maker to struggle with getting their photos to do their creations justice.
But at least I’m happy with how my tweeties look in real life. ♥
