Photography - FTW!!

Plus I got a number of multiple-angle sets of images of other stuff that will be showing up on Etsy soon! Yeah!! Working on my 2011 goal of using the interwebs to the best of my abilities!!! For those with an interest, I set up a card table around 6 feet away from the wall, and taped the end of a large roll of white bulletin board paper to the wall as high as I could reach. The other end of the roll draped forward across the top of the card table and down onto the floor. We put two lights, one on either side, at the front edge of the table pointing at the center of the table, where we place the items we were photographing. Then we turned off the overhead lights to put the back of the smooth paper backdrop in the shadow as much as we could. We probably could have gotten more of a shaded effect if we got farther away from the wall. It also would have been nice to have a light directly overhead. We may see if we can borrow another light to do this the next time we take pictures. There was also a shelf too close to the right side of the setup, which resulted in some weird shadows in the upper right hand corner of some of the images.
P.S. The scarf shown here will not be going up on Etsy, but it will be for sale at one of the shops or shows I am selling at this spring.
