OUR 33rd ANNIVERSARY & WORKING ON BETTER PHOTOS FOR ETSY


I've been sort of Blog lazy this week. I just realized that I have not even posted anything since last Sunday! Shame on me! Today is our 33rd wedding anniversary--HOW CAN THAT BE??? Wasn't just a "few" years ago that we were racing to our getaway car after the reception, only to find that someone had wired the doors shut!!! GRRR!
Anyway, we have had a pleasant "laid back" day today. We had an early evening meal (wasn't sure whether to call it supper or dinner, especially since we ate at 4:30pm), at Taco Bueno. It is our customary trek on our anniversary because when we left our wedding reception 33 years ago, we headed straight to the only Taco Bueno located in the Houston area. It was tucked away in an obscure location in Pasedena, TX. MMMMmmm, but it was/is our favorite!

I've spent the last couple of days trying to improve my photography skills (or lack of) for my Etsy listings.
Here are some samples of my "previous" technique:




and then these are after I applied some recently read rules about white balance and exposure:




I think I am making progress, but there is still room for improvement. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I think your photography is looking good. I am still working on mine - so many things to know.
