I have good news to report. I got a new camera, and now I can photograph my artwork properly. (Bet you thought I was going to say my gums felt better and I wasn’t cranky anymore.) Please compare the old picture of this miniature painting, to the new one.
It will require that you click on them, to enlarge them in order to understand the difference in the quality. Humor me and tell me how much better the new one is. Further humor me by bidding on this miniature on ebay. I will put it up tonight, under “Miniature Daily Oil Painting by Lisa Towers” which you will have to type into the search box. (Our blog server WordPress, will not allow us to publish links to ebay anymore–sorry!)
That’s the good news. The bad news is this new Nikon D40 digital camera is so bloody complicated, it will take me years to learn how to work it. I got it because it will take my array of Nikon lenses from my early years of being a photographer with a film SLR. I can work it with the lens it came with (which is what the above was shot with), but it will take a degree to be able to shoot with a manual lens.
