Uncluttering the Studio

I have been busy uncluttering my studio and setting up a new area for my “mini photo studio.” I have to be able to manipulate the lighting better, which obviously entails having more room to move lights, props, camera, and so on. So I created a separate area for this and boy, does it help with other stuff, too! Now I have a whole table for soldering and keum boo work without being afraid to set my light box on fire. Nice! And it’s amazing how inspiring an uncluttered space can be…

I will be posting some pictures of my new set up soon. I am trying to clear and clean the whole space, so it is taking longer than anticipated, because I can’t do it all at once. Plus, the uncluttering has put me to work taking pictures of things I need to sell locally or on eBay to clear the clutter and also purchase a new camera I have my eyes on. The little Olympus I have been using for years has served me well, but I am ready to upgrade and work some more to improve my photographs.

I used to do photography when I was younger (waaay before digital cameras were invented!) and loved to work in my dark room. I don’t think I have utilized those skills fully for my jewelry photos, and I think it’s time to do so. Boy, it’s so easy to forget how many talents we all have, isn’t it? We get caught up in one thing and everything else seems to fade away. For some reason, life is prompting me to blend all my talents together, so I am going with the flow… More on the new set up later.
