.... faffing about, which is what I've been doing trying to get a decent photo of this card. I read the other day that the best way to photograph a card with 3D decoupage is to stand it on a window ledge at right angles to the natural light so that the shadows add dimension and relief. So I've been faffing and fiddling and really don't seem to have achieved anything new. You really wouldn't believe, from the photos, the depth and realistic appearance of the decoupage.
The image and background paper (and the insert, which doesn't show) are from Joanna Sheen's beautiful Victorian Christmas cards CD.
Not only that, now I've blown them up on the screen I can see how blurred the images are because I turned the flash off to try to make the most of the alleged shadows from the window so the exposure time was quite long. I must head off and add "Photography for Dummies" to my Amazon wish list.
I'll try to add a better photo at the end if I manage to take one, but in the meantime I'm playing along with F is for...... which is the current CD Sundays challenge. Oh, and as well as faffing, F is also for Fruit and Flowers! (Actually looking yet again at my photos, F is also for failure!)
Later........ I've managed to get a photo that shows the depth a bit better - but there's glare in the corner from the winter sun coming straight in through the window. I can't win!
