As I mentioned yesterday, I've been experimenting with the self timer on my camera. I thought I had everything in order and ready to go. However...
I live in New Mexico, where the sun is very bright and the shadows are sharp. My initial set up was done in the afternoon and I wanted to take pictures this morning. That part of the backyard was mostly in shadow so it wouldn't work at all. The patio seemed to be ok, so I went with that. Still not seeing as much detail as I'd like but this set is better than the last one. I'll keep trying.
The first picture is of me wearing the HotPatterns Bossa Nova skirt that I posted about here.
The next one is Hearts Fluttering in Vogue, the morph of Vogue 8241 and Hearts a Flutter that was my original wedding gown concept. I went another direction with that but I did go ahead to finish the prototype which went to Kauai on the honeymoon.
The last one for today is the TSW Mixit Tank worn with the Easy Ageless Cool cropped pants. Both pieces are great to wear and perfect for August weather.
I do love taking the pictures in natural light but I need to keep experimenting. The sun is brutal and I'd like more detail (yes, I tried it facing into the sun too--note that those shots didn't make the cut!). And the Weber isn't flat on top so placement can be a problem. You can see that in the second picture, where the camera was tipped up slightly vs. being level.
But you try things, right? And so far, each attempt has been better than the last, so I'm learning.
