lamp shades with ribbon

Wanted to show you the finished lampshades (actually, I had made them already and just switched them out.) But look what a simple change in altering the flash does to a pic.

The above pic was taken with a piece of regular white paper over the flash. Below, is the pic taken WITH the flash. A very big difference. The pic above is more true to life. The below pic comes out looking harsh and cold. The white actually looks blue, doesn't it?

And after just 1.5 years of blogging with photos....I figured out how to take a better picture. Sigh....doesn't take me too long, now does it??? ;-)

Paper over the flash? Are you serious? That is all it took? Amazing.

The last time my son was home, he said, "Mom, in order to get a better picture, turn off the flash!" I said, "Now, why didn't I think of that?" How clever?

I love your lamps and I do agree that the pic w/o the flash is so warm and inviting.

What a difference. I know you told me that "hint" before but you know my memory. Maybe I'll remember next time.
