More Macro Photos and Minis Going to Etsy

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

I worked several hours today on macro photographing some of my miniature food and then placing them on Etsy.

Most of what I worked on was side dishes for meals. After all, our dollhouse people need good meals as much as we do. The presence of food on the table makes a dining room come alive.  I love creating miniature food for dollhouses and roomboxes. I like to see how realistic I can make each item. I have made miniature food for a while now and it must look realistic. I posted a real Christmas Candy Cheesecake on my Facebook page and a lot of people thought it was a miniature cake. I must be doing something right. Here are some of the side dishes and one of my complete dinners

I placed in my Etsy shop.

A Peachy Beginning

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

I love peaches! I love the smell of fresh peaches at the farmers’ market. I love the colors of peaches. I don’t even mind the fuzz on peaches. So, naturally, I like making peaches. My favorites are the peaches with the reddish blush. If you look closely at the peaches I make, you can even see the peach fuzz.  You might actually think you can smell the peaches if you happen to pass by my sales table at one of the miniature shows I attend. I am planning many more displays of peaches. Here are two of my baskets of peaches.

Still Working on Macro Photography

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

I think I may have hit on the right idea to make the work on my miniature macro photography work. After some great ideas from my son Jonathan, I opened Lightroom (newest update) and tethered my camera to my laptop.  I can edit the photo right after I shoot the item. With using a macro lens, I can even slide my backdrop to move my item to center it. After taking the pictures this weekend, I did find out I need to use a lint roller as little white specks popped up.

Here are a few of the pictures I took and added to my Etsy Shop.
