What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #333

The kitchen table is cleared, ready for dinner when we get back at 7pm. Nothing to see there, I'm afraid.

























In lieu of a desk shot, here's one of the cards we made in class this morning. The rest were Christmas cards. I'm saving those to share once Hallowe'en has passed and I'm feeling a little more festive.

It's so dark here today, as you can probably tell from the photo. I should have taken some pictures yesterday when the sun was shining. How do you get sharply focussed shots on dull days? Any tips gratefully received.

I'll be back on Friday with my SIPIDI project progress. If all goes to plan, there will be a Linky List to share what you've been inspired by on Pinterest (or elsewhere) this month. Care to join me?

For today, I'm linking up with Julia and the deskers of the world.

Beautiful card. I also like the embossing tree trunks, a nice background to the coloured leave tree.

Oh, that tree is so perfect for autumn - lots of our trees up here look like that, with dark trunks and lemony leaves. Super ...

Alexandra said...

Your card is absolutely lovely. It's perfect! :)

Lovely card. I was hoping to pick up some tips on dull day photography but there are none so far. You could use a tripod to use a lower exposure. Set the camera to timer exposure so that you don't have to touch the camera and jolt it as it takes. Yes I know that's all a big faff!

Such a nice Autumn card, love it! I live in an apartement on the second floor with big windows to the North-West so even on dark days I have good light to make photos. Do you have such a spot in your house? I used to take photos of my art (in our former house) in our bedroom... and sometimes even outside in the garden. Look for a spot/window that has the most light and it usually works. Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #13

That's a beautiful card! I love your style, very elegant (and the card's not bad either!!)
I saw a comment somewhere that you didn't have to go to Plymouth last weekend...awesome news. I hope things are settling down....

Hi Fiona,

What a nice card. I like the embossed trees.

I'm finally getting around to some desks today - better late than never.
Happy belated WOYWW

Really lovely card. I try to take my photographs near to a window to get as much natural light as possible but it is hit and miss. On my camera I sometimes find using the macro setting helps.

Sian said...

What a lovely card. It's a beautiful colour combination. I struggle a lot with finding light here too. Near a window helps and I have a "lights on" filter from Radlab which helps too

Louise H said...

Gorgeous card. I can't help with the photo problem. I sometimes use my bathroom - I think the white tiles help reflect more light but the background isn't as photogenic!

Jo said...

Another lovely card, I don't know how you think them all up! x

Gail said...

That's a lovely fall card. As for lighting on dull days. I think Ali Edwards shared somewhere on her blog about how she takes photos for her blog. Found it - it's at http://aliedwards.com/2013/01/photographing-project-life

Simply lovely.

Happy WOYWW!
