I don’t even want to know how long it’s been since I blogged. My partner had a few relapses and wasn’t doing well. When that happens I draw back from everything so I can focus on him. These have been getting fewer but he had some bad ones recently.
Well, things have calmed down again so I thought “why not fling myself into chaos”.
I decided to pull my little pagan shop offline for 2 weeks so I could revamp it! Photos need reshooting, new items need making, policies need sprucing, banner needs changing etc etc
Sounded like a great idea… until I realised just how much work this was going to be. It didn’t help that M and I just spent hours today with my light tent taking new photos only to find that even tweaked, they were coming up bluish or redish. This is even with a white balance card and a frigging good camera.
Soooo because I am being a little bit of perfectionist and don’t want my photos looking like that, I have decided to be bold and move away from plain white backgrounds (mostly). I always found them better than what I originally used but now I think I need to move on.
What does this mean? All those hours were wasted and I have to take another gazillion photos again (when the daylight is back).
Oh well, if I want this shop to be viable I guess these mistakes are going to happen. Another of these learning curves that bite you in the backside.
