Anyone know anything about shooting “still lifes” (still lives?) and want to help me with a photo shoot? I have a super-wonderful idea for a Christmas card design, but it’s going to require some photography techniques that I’ve never tried before.
Basically I need to take a miniature model of a scene and make it look HUGE. I have a macro lens (and that is seeming like the right answer from a gut perspective), but I’m not sure. Any ideas?
I also need to start crafting in earnest (SERIOUS CRAFTING!!!! ;-) for the show this year. Like last year, I’ll be doing the Holiday Shoppe (again, the extra “e” makes it classs-ay) at Cary Academy. I’ll have jewelry, polarfleece hats, knitted and polarfleece scarves, bags and a wide assortment of “etcetera.”
I’m considering selling some of my photography, though I have reservations about whether any of them are the sort of thing that people would actually pay money for. I was considering making notecards (which, because they’re useful, at least gives the photography a purpose…less pressure than hanging on the wall). Good idea?
Finally, I *have* to get a better system for putting my crafts online. Right now I’m manually adding them to HTML tables, which, as you can imagine, is making updating so onerous that I don’t do it very often. I need to have a wee db, into which I can add simple info like product name, image, description, price and then have it display in a web page (preferably with little “buy” buttons). This is completely beyond my skillset though… anyone want to trade jewelry (or hats or scarves or…) for db/web geekery? (Think Christmas gifts!! ;-)
