Makeover Monday: 1/23

Happy Monday!  Once again, I'm caught without a crochet make to share today.  I'm waiting on confirmation regarding those shabby chic chair pads, and I have been busily working on Mom's big rug.  I do have a "before and after" to show you, though!

Here's a photo I took this morning.  It's a gray and dreary day, and this is shown without any photo editing.

Here's the same object, same day, same time, still no editing.  This time I used my fancy new photographer's flood light and white light diffusing umbrella.  It's my first time playing with it, so I need to fiddle with distance and height.  I'm pleased overall, though, that I don't have to wait for the natural light to be just perfect to take my photos.

And by the way, do you know what this thing in the photos is called?  I get that it's some kind of filter- maybe for coffee or tea?  You were so helpful with the pattern tracer, I thought I'd call on you again :)

Jennie, your flood light with diffuser umbrella thingy is fabulous!!
I need one of them right now :o)
I hope a&b originals has got your filter thingy right, or 'ma' knows, as I haven't got a clue! lol
It has got some pretty flowers on it though :o)

Have a great week Jennie :o)
Love and hugs to you,
Love Donna xxOOxx

So happy you like the photog's light and that it'll come in handy on rainy days or cloudy days.

Don't have a clue what your photo is of but I'd go with aandboriginals suggests. Whatever, it is pretty!
