Better Card Photos?

Have you noticed that my photos have improved? No? Well I think they have!

I used to scan everything but sometimes the colours would get washed out. So I started taking photos but the lighting was very difficult unless I took the card outside.

I think I have finally found something that works for me!

Let me share with you my new "photo studio".

Yes that's it!
All it is is 2 pieces of white fun foam. I place these on a counter with under cabinet hallogen pot lights and then place my OTT (natural light) table lamp in front of the subject.

Sometimes I'll use 2 pieces of black fun foam but I think I like the look of the white better - more reflective light.

This new set up allows me to take photos any time of day - really even at night when everyone's in bed.

Now you all know my little secret!
