And when I got back and sat down at my computer, I found an exciting message in my Etsy convos. A message from a magazine editor interested in one of my necklaces for a story on bridesmaid gifts. Perfect! Except that he needed a hi-res copy of the picture. Not perfect! Because the camera I take my product shots with is not hi-res. In fact, to be honest, I'm not even exactly sure what hi-res means, even after spending some quality time on google. But fortunately I have a neighbor (and friend of 23 years - seriously we met on the first day of college) that I thought might be able to help.
So I called and woke her up, and then went over to her house where she is currently trying to integrate her new fiancé's house full of stuff into her house full of stuff, and we dug through boxes and bags and the hooks in her mudroom, and a few kitchen drawers, and finally found all of the components to her extremely fancy camera. That's a good friend. And at the last minute she also gave me her point and shoot that she thought might work. And thank god for the last minute addition of the point and shoot, because it turns out I have No Idea how to operate the fancy camera, and I couldn't make myself go back over there and ask her for a lesson when she's trying to dig out from all of that stuff and hadn't had any coffee yet. But the point and shoot did much higher resolution pictures than my camera, so I just ran with it and hoped for the best.
Here's what I ended up with. Hopefully it works? I sent them off to the editor, and fingers are crossed I hear something back in the positive. Or even the negative if it's just about the quality of the pictures, because I'm not above bothering Leslie on another day for a tutorial on the super fancy camera.
Soooo, let's hope for the best on the magazine. Seriously, bridesmaids love ferns!
