So, if you're a sucky photographer like me, you will love Funky Junk Interior's "Blog Photography Workshop". I lovingly refer to my photography as "craptacular", and really, I would love for it to be better. The awesome thing about this workshop is that it's based on using point-and-shoot photography. Finally, I don't have to feel like a putz for being the last scrapbooker in the world without a digital SLR!
The first installment from last week talks about keeping your camera still, either by propping it on something or keeping your elbows locked into your sides and holding your breath while you press the button.
Here's a photo of my layout from last week where I know that I moved (I think the terrible lighting may also have caused a shutter delay on this shot). I tried, but I had to breathe!
If only I was a cyborg, I would never have my pesky need to breathe damage otherwise workable shots. *sigh*
Here's one where I used the same method, but am quite certain that I didn't move much at all. It really made a difference!
Propping the camera on a stationary object seems to have worked even better...but wouldn't you know it - I can't find the photos! If only I was a cyborg, I could store all of those photos internally. *sigh*
This week's tutorial is on lighting which is a chronic issue in my photos, as I often complete my projects and photograph them in the evening. I am too tired to give it a try tonight, so I'll post about that soon. If only I was a cyborg, I wouldn't have to sleep. *sigh*
Oh well. I guess if I can't be a cyborg, at least I can learn some mad photog skills.
