…apparently, the best part of looking at restored furniture is seeing the “before” shot . although i hold bachelors of science degree in the School of Cinematography, apparently the digital age ensued the day i graduated. thus and so, i have been intimidated by words such as “pixel” , “jpegs” and “image sensor chips”. in other words, i have not picked up a camera in YEARS , that was until i was FORCED to do so, by one, very digitally aged, techno geek hubby . he assures me, “even a five year old can take a picture”….and so i do. in fact, i stage. i boutique. i even straightened up. i used sunlight, moonlight, fluorescent light and natural light. only to discover from hubby, out of all those pictures i staged, only 10 or 12 were “acceptable”. sighhhh’ how i can take blurry pictures with a a Fuji Fine Pix S1500 auto focus still haunts me. but in the words of Jodee Messina, ” i’m not gonna let it get me down”, i am gonna figure it out. so, if you don”t mind blurry “before” pictures, i will be sure to have crisp clear “after” photos. Here are the “Afters”.
