I've been busy with work related things as well as the Blogging Your Way class that I'm taking. You may have noticed the little badge over on my sidebar. The class has been really interesting so far. I've enjoyed how it's got my wheels turning on a lot of things, not just my blogs.
In addition to Holly, we have Leslie as a second instructor. This past week there was a bit of talk about lighting in the forums, so I thought I would play around with my camera and lighting, both in the apartment and with the Picasa software I've been using. I really need to start using the Photoshop Elements program I have, but it's a bit daunting.
By no means am I nearly anywhere as skilled as Leslie in her photography and staging, but it's fun to goof off a little for now until I figure out how I want to utilize this area of the class. I don't know that I really see myself styling color groupings like she does, but it's fun to play with the concept for now. It's a challenge to find small things in the house in the same color! Maybe it will trigger something else that's more 'me'.
Meanwhile, I'm really wishing for some good light. I have a few more tricks to try that involve a white tablecloth, but this snowy gray weather isn't helping things.
