So many people ask me how to get good photo’s of their cards and every time I answer daylight. I find that normal home lighting just doesn’t fit the bill and leaves my photography with an orange cast. As some of you know I recently fitted a daylight tube light fitting into my craft room as it not only gives true colours but it also is kinder on your eyes and it makes you feel a little better in yourself too.
I wanted to show you what I work with now and show you some comparisons to why it is better.
below is the table lamp I use it has a lamp head that twists so I can dirct the light where I need it and it also has a magnifier which is brilliant.
Daylight™ Table Top Lamp, White from UK Daylight Company
Below is a couple of photos took through the magnifier the first is without the lens and the second is with the lense
As you can see there is quite a difference and I love the fact that I can just push the lens to one side when I don’t need it.
The next couple of picture will show you an amazing difference, I took the first picture withought using the Daylight lamp and the second picture with.
Without the lamp
With the Lamp
You can see it is a much clearer picture and truer colours by using the lamp
For me it is a must have, I do have a light box for my cards but to be totally honest it isn’t a patch on my lamp.
