Creating A White Background

Using a cool tutorial I found on KMC Designs Blog I cleaned up the backgrounds in some of the white photos I took for my new Etsy shop. Ultimately I want all of my photos to have white backgrounds since I think it will make my shop look more cohesive. I’ve been learning to use a friend’s Digital SLR which I’m using to take the photos, so hopefully I’ll soon be able to do more in-camera adjustments to the photos, and fewer adjustments in photoshop.

Here’s another one, the spider accordion book that I did an earlier blog post about, but this time with a nice white background.

Hi Teresa! I made this paper myself by creating a digital collage of animals and then printing it with a laser printer on brown recycled paper – but maybe I will make the file I used a digital download that people can buy to print their own paper!
