Yeah, I know, yesterday was in the same basic place but today I got out the speed light to try to light it up better. It didn't work as well as I'd hoped. I really would need diffusers and reflectors and multiple sources. I don't have that kind of set up. If I want to get into this kind of shooting, I will need to look into it. I have read about a simple light box I could use but it was pretty much only white background. I'll consider it eventually.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
