How exciting is this! New camera that takes video and a blog that allows me to share it.
This is from our living room window. The large backhoe is right outside the window. Look at the curtains and then the cars that are going by to get some perspective. I'm too new to all of this to get a good video but you get the idea. Maybe better ones later.

I’ve learned most of my picture taking information from the Internet, my husband and my son-in-law. Somehow, the latter two have given me some help but apparently they don’t know exactly how to get a white background either. They have helped me to understand ISO, depth of field and shutter speed. Good things to know for a person who is usually just a point and shoot picture taker. Well, my Internet exploring has lead me to one conclusion, even professional photographers don’t know or will admit that taking a picture of jewelry with a white background is very hard.
I found a series of videos on the Internet by Michael Seto, a professional photographer in New York City who explains how to take photographs of jewelry. Thanks Michael. Now I just need t make a “set up” as he suggests and take more pictures. I’m still working on finding the equipment I need to work with. (See, it isn’t easy! Especially for a point and shoot photographer)
As I progress, I’ll share more pictures. Assuming I get good ones.
