Never Too Old To Learn

I took a photography class with Gail Zucker this past weekend at Webs yarn store. I've been dabbling in photography all my life and this was a nice refresher course. If you have a chance to take the class with Gail I highly recommend it. Let's see if I learned anything....

Black Velvet Background
 Sucks up the light and makes your object pop!
 Side light. Textures. Depth.
 Use round shapes when looking down on your subjects because humans like it.
 Reflect light.
Play with photo enhancing software.  Picnik used here.
Now I need to gather my finished objects and start shooting!
