Here it is with all three lights on. You can see there is quite a bit of light.
Now for the fun
ny part... I mentioned my light box is always on my floor. Well... so am I when I photograph my cards! LOL Imagine a superman pose, laying on the floor. That's me down there... getting ready to take a picture! LOL It's not ideal, but it works for me.
Camera and Settings
I use the Sony DSC-HX1 to take photographs. It can also be used an HD video camera, which is a nice bonus. You can find it on Amazon, HERE. It has plenty of perks that hopefully make up for my lack of expertise. This camera was suggested to me by Kim, the owner of MFT.
I like the big display screen and it's pretty user-friendly.
Here are the settings on the camera. I tend to stay on the P setting. Confession: I have no clue what that means. I have it on P, make sure the macro is on (the little flower) and that is the end of my prep work. I'm thinking I need to carve out some time and read the manual. *note to self - learn how to use camera ASAP
Editing Software and Procedure
I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 to edit my photographs. I purchased it from the Apple App store for my iMac. Looks like there is a new version out, and you can check it out HERE.
