I could probably do much more as far as the light booth goes, but you can see how dark the picture is even though my booth was flooded with light. Clearly some adjustments need to be made to the settings of the camera..... shutter speed, aperture, exposure.... I remember those terms from my class, but not sure which does what. I think in this case shutter speed would allow more light to enter the lens, thereby brightening up the image, but I don't know for sure.
Now you may be thinking that it's silly to worry about this with all the editing software available, and I'll be the first to admit that I am obsessed with Picasa; But I don't want my calligraphy images over edited. Below is the same image after adjusting it in Picasa.
.....this also means I should put more thought into my light booth.
Thanks for reading!!!!
