Back to School Table Desk & a Photography Tip

This was a custom order for Shannon and her daughter who needed her desk flipped so she could study in style. I'm in love with crystal knobs on black furniture. I looks so classy! I buy mine at Hobby Lobby but when they're out you can find them at Home Depot or Lowe's.

I got a little carried away while I was editing these pictures- I also discovered the ''auto fix'' option... It made a HUGE difference in the pictures. You'd never know the sun was going down when I took these pictures... or that they were taken from my cell phone... unless you're some picture expert or something, maybe.

I usually spend roughly 30 minutes photographing each piece that I paint and take around 60ish pictures that I sort through and pick my faves. I then spend between 30 minutes to an hour cropping, editing, and adding my logo. When it's all said and done about 10-20 make it to the interwebs (I post more to my Facebook than my blog) and I invest upwards of an hour and a half of time to pictures of each piece. I think it's really important to have good pictures and capture your hard work. I lack in the area of photography but I'm learning a little- I do know that good sunlight will make a world of difference if you're using a regular ol camera that doesn't have fancy options. Orrr, just hit that auto fix button =) That's my photography tip of the day- and probably the only one I'll ever give.
 Thanks for reading!
