I FINALLY got my little collages photographed...and they came out great! I never gave up...read various articles about photography on the internet and just plain messed around with it until I got it. I've learned more about my camera in the past few weeks then I have in the last five years!! Gulp!Smile!! I also switched out the background to a weathered board I found on the beach in Cambria two summers ago. I really like it so much better than the burgundy velvet cloth I was using...gives it more character.
