What did you use? I just bought a tripod, light box, lamps, and downloaded gimp (photoshop knock off). Did you use any of those? Can you please explain what you did? I love the view and how close you are to the clips.
Hi, I didn't use any of those. I have a tripod, but I'm too lazy to use it. I usually just take my pictures out side. but I took this one by a window ( it was snowing ore raining outside, can't remember). I edited them at http://www.photoshop.com you just have to set up an account there and it's free. I downloaded gimp but I didn't understand anything. I like photoshop because it was pretty easy. but I'm sure you can do lot more stuff with gimp than photoshop. hope this helps

oh I don't have a light tent either. but I'm thinking to make one soon.

I think it's a little to close up actually, its kinda hard to focus on it. But that's just my opinion. Cute!

I don't think your original picture needed to be edited that much the colors were actually truer in the original. are you using the super macro feature on your camera?

There are a lot of pros on here ( and that is not being sarcastic in case anyone takes me up wrong). I honestly thought that was a fabulous picture but i really have a lot to learn. I wish i had someone to help me with this stuff. If i had of taken that picture and edited it i would have been so proud of myself! I haven't taken any pictures yet because i'm too afraid. I got a new camera off my DH that's supposed to be brilliant and was really expensive but every picture i've taken has been rubbish. It's my Achilles heel in this whole process. My website has been up sice December and i only have 1 crap photo on it!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm pretty new to the bow making thing... but photos I do know!!! the edit is definately too light, the colors have changed tones. One suggestion I have (if you don't already do it) is to set a custom white balance for you photo... that'll help the original have truer colors and the whites will be whiter so you won't have to edit so much. You can also try to use white cardboard to refect the natural light you have coming from windows to get a more evenly lit photo... that really just takes alot of playing around to get right. Good luck!
