Craft Giveaway II with TheCraftShop
Welcome to another Craft Giveaway from TCA . I’m so glad to have received tremendous response to my previous craft giveaway in collaboration with Rainbow Craftykari HERE for which the winner was Afreen Banu. Today we have a Craft Giveaway sponsored by TheCraftShop for Craft goodies worth Rs.500!!! So what are we waiting for ? Lets start ! But before that, here is my blog introspection dairy and also a little about myself 🙂
TCA CRAFT GIVEAWAY (2 ) SPONSOR : THE CRAFT SHOP
As a token of gratitude to all my readers and supporters, I have arranged a giveaway 2015 series of 6 giveaways running through 2 months starting today. For this second craft giveaway, we have one of our lovely online Indian Craft store – The Craft Shop by Priya Sivraj sponsoring Craft goodies worth Rs.500 to one lucky winner.
Blog Introspection for one year anniversary
- I spend a lot of time editing the blog I mean the technical and background stuffs of it or rather waste my time on it! Is it an easy thing to do ? Yes if you are blogging for the fun of it and do not care about SEO and all relater weird shit!
- I am still sticking on to my agenda of sharing only tutorials on my blog. Making tutorial is difficult since you have to keep photographing at each step and there is a possibility that your work turns out bad due to the breaks you are taking to get the pictures!
- I want more crafter interaction here not just papercrafters but thats not happening. Somehow I feel India is not yet ready to spend quality time crafting. Its either for business related purpose or its a sidelined activity without much investment of time or money.
- I have been wanting to start a section on home improvement but I’m getting it to nowhere becasue firstly there is little help here in India regarding resources available and secondly I want to be satisfied completely before I post my home photographs here 😛
- Also you guys would know already about earn for tutorial submission programme HERE. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you arr interested 🙂
Get to know me session :
If you like to know something about me or the blog or anything technical about setting up your blog ( the whole blog setup and design has been done by me), you can drop them in the comments below.
What camera do you use to capture your photographs for the blog?
I’m not a photograph enthusiast. I am satisfied as long as my photographs look well lit and has captured the real beauty of my works ! I use Canon IXUS to capture most of my works and sometimes when its battery has died out and I have to take photographs before lil grace wakes up, I shoot with my Sony cybershot.
Any particular tips for craft photography?
The tips are simple and maybe repeated but they are definitely to be followed for good photographs :
- Have a well lit room for photographing. Do not stand right under the sun for this one – you will end up with glare!
- Use a white background – maybe you could invest in 2 chart papers. When in doubt, have a plain white background.
- Props are apt when they look good and they go well with the theme of your craft.
- Always always always edit your photographs. I use photoshop to edit the photographs only mostly lighting, and also to watermark/add title texts etc
Whats your other hidden talent?
I actually do not have any talents 😛 We all need to practice and keep interest in order to develop them until then , you actually have no talents! Other than crafting, Im more so interested in home improvement ( which unfortunately is not working here right now!)
