I have a few new additions to my blog.

I am still learning how to photograph my beaded projects. I'll take any advice that is offered to get a clearer photo. Also, is there a way to make the resolution smaller when you click on the photo? Mine are gigantic when they open up!!!

You're not alone, Susan. I'm still learning how to use my new camera and I think my photos of my work could be better.

I take my photos with the item on a flat surface in front of a well lit window (no sunshine coming in though). Then I turn off the flash; that's what causes so much reflection that colors get wiped out and too many sparkles show up. Sometimes I use the macro setting and sometimes the auto (actually I take some of both and see which turn out best). I use a medium setting for quality so the picture won't come out too big and also crop the picture to make the pixel size less. Then when you open a picture it won't take so long or be so big. At least, this is what I have found to work. It's possible I have just plain ol' been lucky as I really know nothing about photography!

Good idea to turn the flash off and to use medium quality instead of maximum. I don't have to worry too much about sunshine coming in this time of year - I live in Michigan after all,and right now it is gray and snowing, very gray, but not as gray as my depression piece at least!
