Springtime Diorama

Having Playtime In the Studio
In the evenings...


Since working during the daytime in my
Real Estate job...

I'm finding the evenings to be the
best time to get creative..


And then when the sun comes up in the
morning while I sip my coffee
I take my pictures..


I always favor natural light when shooting...
I do however use a large piece of white foam core
to help bounce the light on my subjects
It works really well to fill in shadows.
And you can find foam core
at the $1 store for a $1
Such a deal!!

Hugs,

I can't believe it's been a whole year since I first fell in love with your Easter creations. They make me feel like a little girl waiting for the egg hunt to begin.

Very cute! I admire the fact that you can craft after working all day. I end up sitting on the sofa most of the evening:)

*sigh* I wish I could take such pretty pictures! Everything always looks so fresh.
Speaking of fresh, I'm totally jealous of your west coast living right now. Not because of the weather (although that's a close second), but because of our horrible fruits and veggies. This time of year, there's nothing fresh to choose from. I could go for a red, juicy strawberry right now - not sour, tasteless and bruised fruit we get here.

That's a good idea- especially during our dark winters. Your creations are so cute!!!
