A bad photo can make even the prettiest cookies look ugly. However, I have learned a few tricks and tips over time that make things little easier, especially for those of us who are photographically challenged.
So, from now on, no more ugly photos. Pretty is the name of the game. Use pretty platters and a simple background. First of all, ditch the bags and cookie sheets in favor of a pretty platter. I recommend white because it goes with almost anything and does not detract from the cookies.
I learned this trick from Glorious Treats on Flickr a few years back and it changed my life. Most of the photos I take begin like this, and end with me doing contortionist-like moves to get just the right shot. Combined with good natural light this is about all you need to take a great photo.
However, if you want to take it even a bit further, I have a few more tips that will take your photos from good to even better. Buy a decent camera and learn how to use it. I bought a Cannon EOS Rebel T3i bundle just like this onewhich came with a mm lens that has worked perfectly for my cookie pics.
With a camera like this, it really is hard to take a bad photo but it takes time to learn how to use it. I used to only shoot in AUTO until my friend Cheryl pointed out that if I do this I pretty much paid a fortune for a point and shoot camera.
See that little button labeled ISO? But what I do know it that is can make a dark photo light and vice versa. If you push that little button it will give you a list of ISO choices from to My next favorite camera function is exposure compensation.
You adjust exposure compensation using the little dial shown below. You can see the range on both the display screen and through the viewfinder.
To keep it simple, as you count up from zero, the photos get lighter. As you move backwards, darker. In the meantime, here is my second secret to pretty cookie photos…a light box. Use a light box, day or night. Until a few months ago I always thought of my light box as a way to take photos when it was too dark to use natural light.
However, in recent months I have noticed it also works well for diffusing natural light. I used to run all over the house looking for the perfect light, but now I just find a bright spot and let my box do the rest.
Although I have been through several light boxes, this one is my favorite by far. This was another tip I learned from Cherylwho led me to this tutorial.I was at my neighbors log home yesterday, and she was asking me questions about painting the interior logs to lighten and brighten the area.

Look no further! Crayons Pencils and Students OH MY. Included in this product. Kayla Apr 02 pm The story is rather basic and simple but I extremely loved this drama because of the two main leads. The chemistry between them is so amazing and I watched the entire drama just to see their cute and cheesy love.
I never got enough of seeing romantic scenes between So Ji-Sub and Shin Min-Ah. Jerz > Writing > General Creative Writing Tips [ Poetry | Fiction ] Writing short stories means beginning as close to the climax as possible — everything else is a distraction.
A novel can take a more meandering path, but should still start with a scene that sets the tone for the whole book. s - s Page 1 of 3 Click on image for larger and additional views!
