The Better Pictures Project is back! In September, Heather B taught us about taking photos out and about… in October, Jenny from Cashmerette got us jumping and twirling… and in November, Heather from Closet Case Files improved our photo editing skills!

Let’s lift the curtain a bit, shall we? What do I really look like before my pics are editied???

I’m intrigued that Jenny has local sewing friends act as her photographer – as someone who prefers a tripod, I really wonder what that would be like? Jenny wrote about her own quest … More Better Pictures Project: More is more with Cashmerette!
This month’s Better Pictures Project homework is to find a spot less than 5 minutes from home – basically, a tried’n’true photo location where you know you can get decent shots quickly. Maybe it’s a neighbour’s fence, a hedge, a school or church, or a local park. Or frankly, maybe it’s your patio, your garden, your driveway, … More Better Pictures Project: The joys of a TNT photo location

My goal with the Better Pictures Project is to get good, blogable pictures every time. Photography is a … More What do the camera modes actually do?
