"Hulls Cove, May 13, 2010"About an hour of focused hunting. Sea glass, beach stones, china fragments, driftwood, periwinkle shells, mussel shells, other shells, 'sea brick,' and something that might be a sea sponge or might be weird trash.
The light box is working very well - well enough that I'm considering an experiment with colored backgrounds. All of these shots required some finessing in Photoshop to adjust the white balance, since I can't figure out how to do that on my camera. I use an Olympus Stylus 800, which was an amazing camera for its size when I bought it 6 or 7 years ago. It still is! If I get sucked any further into photography, though, I'll have to finally start paying real attention to the mechanical side of it, and I have a sinking feeling I may need a more complicated camera. Do I really want to go there? Do I want to be a photographer? Or am I an artist who takes pictures?
