FOrms and bad Pictures PART 1

Geese! Seems i missed a couple of days....Such is life. Anyway got a few things done since Sunday. Threw Monday. Did a bunch of simple 8" bowls. Also recycled a ton of clay....yippie *spins finger in air* though always happy when i get some of that done.

Working on a new ....Style...Perspective may be a better word, for my work.

Oh let me digress, and get used to it i do that all the time....

About to toss up a photo of the subject of this little post. The problem (as I have mentioned in other rambles) is the fact i am totally NOT set up to take any pictures. And i should not be putting up any of the crap on line. I will though, since a lot of the writing here is also notes for my work HAW!!

Anyway the reason i took this pic in the first place was the fact i have this old small fireplace you see. Well hasn't been used in years. Can;t be used. Though the family of raccoons uses it just fine. Anyway, It got painted flat black (well the can said flat anyway). So me being the genius i am i went "hey, what a great mini backdrop for taking worthless pictures for my notes". NO...Its not.

I know so little about taking pictures past

1. set to Auto (little dial by my thumb)
2. Point at victim (this case a leather hard chunk of clay)
3.apply pressure to designated button to "shoot" picture. I like term "shoot" the picture in this case because it seems i kill whatever falls into my view finder. I swear during one of these impromptu photo shots, i will see a pot dive for cover,

Again i digress....

What i did learn is the fact that with indoor photos it all comes down to lighting....Don't give me that no s*$t look. I know its importance, what i learned is you can't even fudge it. The flash just sucks for anything like this. Got to have the picture lit. Anyway the little experiment was a failure. But i will toss the pic up anyway and get back to the talk on "form" i WAS going to get to.

Here is the pic, scuse the total lack of professionalism of the picture.
