Welcome to the exciting world of craft photography for total noobs. : ) In an attempt to improve the quality of photos on this blog without investing in any new or expensive equipment, I started playing around with a DIY lightbox and basic photo editing. You can see some of my initial results above — the color is much more true to life after my adjustments. Awesome. I know I’ll never get truly great photos without upgrading my camera, but until my budget allows for such things, I’ll take whatever progress I can get. In this post I present my experimental results as any good scientist would do: with full disclosure. : ) Feel free to weigh in with thoughts and advice!
