Default Re: How do you Take Good, Clear Photos of your clippies?

Macro is great. If you are doing it inside, make sure you have lots of light, and a steady hand. I bought a tripod at the Dollar Tree. It helps a lot. The best though is taking it outside on a sunny day. You don't have to worry about a flash, and if your hand is a little shaky, you can't tell as much. I also googled for a home made light box. I found one on livejournal. All I needed was a cardboard box, some pieces of posterboard, and some tape.

Just wanted to share a pic of a bow. I did it outside with the camera on the macro setting in my make-shift lightbox. There was minimal photoshop done

This is identical to the one I made. It didn't cost anything! I take the box outside and the light ends up being perfect. Inside, the artificial light is really not enough and I end up having to photoshop more.

There's another tutorial for a foam board box, but I'll have to search for it.

That's awesome! The pics. look so good! Also, your barrettes look perfect. Do you use hot glue, magna tac or the thermo tape? And...do you have a particular method of gluing the ribbon down? I was using magna-tac and it made great looking barrettes, but it doesn't stick as well as the hot glue, but I'm having a really hard time with the hot glue. I have messed up so many barrettes with it and never messed up one with the magna tac. Any advice would be great! Thanks!!!

Have you tried Fabri-tac? You can get it at Jo-ann's, Michaels and Wal-mart. It dries quickly and holds very well. I've used it on hairbows, headbands, quick costume fixes, all kids of stuff and never had a problem.
