Up here, in the sticks of Glenbervie, where I stay with Sally the gardener..... In a weeny cottage - space is of a premium and time is lacking. So this is what my teeny weeny photo space is like from two foot away. The glue pot and paper on the left act as a reflector to brighten up the shade and shadows.
And best of all, I use my iPhone to take the pictures. I know, right? Who would have thunk it?
Note: The Paris card is made from craft packaging by trim crafts, I think. Too gawj to chuck away.
I crop the piccies square now so I can adjust lights and darks in Instagram. And that's it. I mean, it's not hard at all and I don't pretend to be fabulous. I guess I naturally am ;). Joking aside. Grab a daylight lamp, some pretty papers and don't forget white card to reflect the shadows.
A pretty good mini studio for emergency wintry light where daylight lasts all of five seconds.
