More Lentil Shaped Beads !

These came out of the kiln this morning. How fun. But, the most exciting thing of all is that I've learned more about my camera in one day than in the five years I've had it. To get crystal clear pictures of my beads without having to photo shop them is just amazing. I learned about setting the white balance, the ISO and tons of other things I knew my camera would do but me and manuals just have never been friends.

I'm the type of person who learns by watching someone else do it. Gabe (my darling son) took the time to point some things out to me so that I would be able to check my settings every time I sit down to photograph my beads. Thank you Gabe. That got me on the website of my camera and able to understand what in the heck the manual was talking about.

Viola! I think these pictures are the best I've ever taken. Adding my name to the photo and trying to think up a name for each bead were the most difficult things I had to do. Yay !!!

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think of my improved photo skills. Love you.
