Ok, so maybe it was a pressie for all the stained glass pieces I’m going to make over the coming months. MerryBerry on Folksy started a thread about the light box she received as a gift on her birthday, and posted a link to it and mentioned that Maplin are offering £10 off until the 25th October 2011.
I’ve run into a few difficulties on cloudy days trying to take decent photos of my glass work as it doesn’t look too good in cloudy weather, and as for trying to photo it under room lights, the photos are absolutely awful. And using a flash isn’t an option either!
So I toddled off to Maplin.. Ok, so I clicked on the link from the comfort of my sofa and I went for a look. The light box is currently on offer for £29.99 which I think is a great price for what I need it for. So I popped back to check MerryBerry’s photo of her felt business card holder again and decided to buy it. Maplin take Paypal 🙂 and deliver for a small charge within 3 working days so next week I’m going to have a new toy to play with.
I reckon it’s going to perfect for photographing my new stained jewellery range and I can use it for the majority of the rest of my glass work too. I’ll have to take some comparison photos and pop them on here once I’ve had a play with it.
