Last night I participated in a live chat with Jen Kiaba and Timothy Adam. It was very informative and I believe everyone came away with something to add to their photo skills toolbox. You can read a transcript of the chat here.

When I started turning pens several years ago, I seldom even took a picture of my work. Of course, looking back, I wish that I had so that I could see the progress I have made over time. That is one reason why I made the recent changes to this site and started trying to blog about the pens and things as I made them. One thing it has done for me is to increase my camera useage, and with that my skills and techniques behind the lens.
While I still want to get a DSLR Camera, I am learning to improve the product I get from my little Fuji Film Finepix digital. It is pretty old as modern cameras go, but it seems to be doing a pretty good job for what I do. I am looking at lighting solutions to help with my ability to take quality macros of my pens. I have seen several tutorials like this one explaining the process for building a lightbox, but call me lazy, I went out and bought a plastic tub in white to serve as my light box. Now I need to start working with different light sources and bulbs to get the colors to come out the way they should.
