Quick Kiddies card

Well to be truthful I have pulled out a kiddies card I made a long time ago to rephotogragh. I have been playing around with my camera settings this afternoon & I have changed my image size because I was loosing a lot in the quality of the photo  I have also changed it to the indoor seting & used my OTE light with no flash.

I am slightly happier with the photo as it hasn't gone through any other editing at this stage. I have photoshop editing software but don't know how to use it, I think I need to buy one of those Photoshop for DUMMIES book.

Let me know what you think or if there are particular settings I should have my camera  on  (i have just been using my Olympus point & shoot but I also own a Digital Canon SLR just thought the picture size would be too big to use it)  feel free to leave me a message.

Happy Stamping


  1. Hi Fi!

    Just love the bright colours of this card - great job!

    As for photography tips............good lord I am no good at photography either! I find the I get the absolute clearest photos at about 6.30am in the morning. Not sure why that is but they are beautiful and clear when i take them at this time and outside on my pathway!

    As for settings - well I am such a dummy so I just keep it on Auto and if those shots look crappy, I move it to the natural light setting. I also make sure I'm back from my card about 3ft and use the macro setting to zoom in! Not sure if that helps any or not but thats how I do it! lol


  2. Love this card, Fiona. Perfect for the kiddies. I can give you a couple of tips - I change my camera setting to macro, then change the flash to none.

    I then use the bits of cardboard that come in the paper packs and place a white cardstock or contrasting colour so you have one laying flat and the other one propped up onto something and then sit my card on that.

    I find if I am taking pics inside I usually put the light on and position a spot near a window. This seems to work okay for me. Or it's even better if you are outside with the natural light. Hope this makes sense.
