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.

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.
