when I post a photo online (either here or on etsy or on facebook), what you see is just a tiny slice of a bigger picture.
my college photography teacher used to tell us to get the garbage out before we shot our pictures.
meaning, literally, look through the viewfinder and if you see garbage, set down your camera and go get rid of the garbage.
I thought you might like to see exactly how I set up for this particular kind of shot: pre-cropped.
(p.s. these are photo transfers on beach glass)
