My Photography 'Corner'

Some of you may know that I currently live in a tiny one bedroom apartment and space is always a constraint. It takes a lot of organizing and 'clever' storage to keep everything in place. 

My craft table doubles (or triple) as well, my crafting area, my photography corner and our dining table. And so far, that's how it's working for us... well, until we move to a bigger apartment (soon! *fingers crossed*)

This is how I stage my photo-taking. Behind me is Ryan's play area.. haha.. and I have to squat in that small area to take my pictures, which is fine and having to clear the table constantly is a good thing for me too. I do try to clear my table after I use it each time anyway :)

See how I just prop up the patterned paper as the background. I change my 'background' to suit the cards I make. I try to use colors that will make the cards stand out and so far this has worked out well for me.

I usually use Photoshop to tweak the exposure, brightness, vibrance and color balance after I take my pictures because we don't have much natural light flowing into my space. The next place we move to, big windows is one of our requirements.. haha.

Hope you enjoyed this little sharing and little peek into my apartment :)

Sweet Blog Hop : On Cherry Street

Hi there! Did you come over from Chrissy's blog or is this your first stop? If this is your first stop, do hop over to the Sweet Blog to start from the beginning so that you don't miss out on any sweet inspirations :)

But wait, before you go anywhere... I would like to share one of my projects that I made with the Magical Kit from On Cherry Street with you. This kit is so chockfull of goodness and I have already made 3 cards and 2 Pocket Life pages with it and I still have leftovers from the kit.

I added alphabet stickers and a strip of wash tape on this 4x6 card 

I painted these wood veneers and added glossy accent to it :)

and for this card (love the calligraphy? I wrote it.. haha), I added wink of stella for added bling and glossy accents too. By now, you know I do love glossy accent too, right? haha..

I hope you are inspired to create more with your Magical kit and if you haven't got one yet, you should drop by the Sweet Shop and get one!

Next stop in this blog hop is Heather's blog. Click on the link and head on over to check her projects out. She's awesome!

Till next time! Craft on :)
