~Apples to Apples~

A little Photography tip*

When visually conveying your photographic subject to the mass crowd keep in mind not all the viewing public have an idea of the size of subject.

The most common comparison item is a quarter ($) laid next to the photographic subject.  I like to use playful items that most of the public can relate too, as this piece of Holiday Candy :)
The photo subject is Little Lone Star ~ available

*Lights On*

~Studio Tip~
Lighting* I use natural day light bulbs instead of the regular low home lighting. If you were to compare the bulbs the regular would through a yellowish false light, were as the natural day light is close to true light. When painting you need the real thing ;) You can find the inexpensive bulbs ($6) at a Home Depot or like store.
