A big thank you

Other bloggers out there will all know the difficulty of photographing objects. In winter when the light is poor it can be really hard to capture colours accurately, particularly wool fibres. Before Christmas I had a couple of customers who where disappointed because the wool they bought was not quite like those shown in the photograph. So when my husband stumbled on a site showing how to make you own light box, he decided to make one for me. A few nights later it was complete and it works really well, here are some before and after shots.

It's hard to believe it's the same set of colours!! I can't wait to use it to take some photographs of finished items. Just need to get crafting again. First of all I need a big clear out, there seems to be so much clutter around since Christmas.

What a difference!
The light box looks so simple too.
I know what you mean about post Christmas clutter. I feel a spring clean coming on!!
