Week 32 The Tori


This week I sold a bunch of my photographs at a local arts and crafts fair and finn fest the Tori. I recently Made a large batch of note cards in my upgraded design. They are high quality 4x6 prints on recycled paper folding note cardstock, with recycled paper envelops, all neatly protected and displayed in clear biodegradable plastic, and they are a standard 5x7 size for framing or mailing. Moving on from my sales pitch, I am very proud of my new design resulting from extensive research to find the right products. It was a fun event, I met lots of people, sold a good number of note cards, ate some good food, listened to some good music and started thinking that maybe I would enjoy doing this type of thing more often. I also helped harvest and photograph this weeks CSA cooler, it was nice and colorful!

There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green.

I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
