I'm going to try to be a little more creative with my backgrounds. My little Nikon Coolpix takes pretty good pictures but it's hard to gauge the colour balance because each computer monitor is different.
I've tried adjusting the colour on my home computer to get it closer to the real thing but when I look at the same picture on my work computer, it is way too garish! So for now, I'm not adjusting and I just hope that what you see is what I hope you see.
I've heard other people say that it's very hard to get a true purple. They tend to look very blue which is especially problematic when so many of my pressed flowers are purple.
There have been some great posts on the Etsy forums about photographing pieces so I just keep trying to absorb as much as I can. I really appreciate all the generous tips from fellow Etsians. Any feedback is welcome!
