Taking photos using lights

Thank you to all who have responded to my post for help, with all your fantastic suggestions.

Time hasn't been on my side this last week to try any of them out.  Obviously I need more than 5 minutes to set some up, and I'm really hoping that early next week will give me some much needed space to do so.

Cheers
Rhonda

That were 90 seconds in Affinity Photo. :P

Light is free… capturing it is not!

My daughter wants to know:

"What else do you use to take photos?"  :rofl:

Primarily I use a piece of white card for the backdrop (or sometimes black if the piece needed more definition), curved so that it shows as seamless.  Up until I purchased my lights, it was a set up on top of my cook plate as it was the best light to get a 'reasonable' photo.  Not brilliant, I know, but it was the best I could do.  My camera is a Fuji - which as I want to get great shots will most likely be upgraded in the near future.

I've been having a look at the Affinity site. Many thanks for that. I'm going to do the 10 days free trial to see how I manage it. I've avoided other sites such as Photobucket, Photoshop, etc. previously as they looked too complicated for me to navigate. BUT, I'm going to bite the bullet on this one and have a go. Fingers crossed that this old girl hasn't lost her ability to learn new tricks!!

Hi Rhonda

It doesn't sound like you've lost too many marbles .... tho if they're like mine, they might just roll around a bit slower  :)
