Monday Moodboard: Photo-drama

A few days ago I started to retake the photo's from my wood jewelry line for the Etsy kraplap shop. Some of my EST friends helped me to find my own style, and finally we had some sun, so it had to be done now. But despite my energy and good will (although I knew better), it was again a desaster :((( Most of the zillion pics I took were too light, too dark, or unsharp. I really start to loose all my hope that I ever will have great pics, sigh .... If you are also struggling with photos, you know what I am talking about. I wish I could take pics like these from some of our excellent European Street Team photographers on Etsy.

Oh Petronella, and I still owe you some lessons of photo-improvement. Hopefully we can do that soon, missing the nice Karschau already. Ah hate this business (the state of being busy, I mean ;-) ).
Thanks for adding my butterfly photo. Oh sweet summer memories!

Ik ken die strijd.
Mooie foto's maken is hard werken.
Soms kost het maken van een foto meer tijd dan het maken van het te fotograferen werkstuk. Dan baal ik, dan vind ik dat de verhouding zoek is. Ik heb even niet de moed, wel nieuw werk, maar nog geen foto's gemaakt, daarom dus!
Ik wacht tot ik weer comfortabel buiten kan fotograferen, zoveel relaxter dan binnen.
