Taking photos can be really hard.
I crop all my photos to squares now, usually around 800 x 800 pixels. I’m ok at composition and cropping etc, I’ve really taken the time to get myself a little set up that is fairly consistent now. I still struggle with lighting/colours despite having photographers lamps though (and I do set my white balance to the conditions but perhaps I should be doing this for every print, not just at the beginning of the session). I’ll get there eventually.
Here’s a new piece, another one made from layers of paper.
