Well, now that we have set our clocks back an hour this weekend my body clock will be all messed up for a week or so! The clock here in the kitchen says 9:50 but I am wide awake and not nearly ready for bed. There is no use fighting it, I might as well stay busy for an hour or so rather than tossing and turning in bed trying to sleep! I know I will feel it in the morning when the alarm rings at six! Aargh
I have spent most of my daylight hours this weekend trying to get caught up on photographing my work. I am terribly behind so it was a must -do task at this point. I haven't really devised a method for inventory, product description and efficient photography for my Etsy products yet. I feel that I am always just rushing to keep up and never really feeling in control.
I take most of my photos in my dining room using the wood floor as a background. I also use a pretty white vintage linen piece as a backdrop for small pieces. So each photo session is a production of dragging out these accessories and various props and getting the light just right and crawling around on my knees arranging things.....I feel quite unprofessional! Of course, I am a non-professional photographer and I'm afraid it shows in my photos.
This sheet of poster board helps even out the light. But my window of opportunity for good lighting is short. I keep meaning to do more reading to improve my photos but other tasks call more loudly! I would rather be weaving or knitting.
I have been enjoying this extended beautiful autumn weather. I will be sorry to see the snow and cold arrive though we know it will. I hope the winter is short, mild and less snowy than our 88 inch snow total of last year.
I just keep reminding myself, spring will come again and so will the roses . . . . . .
