2009-02-25 [Skydancer]: Adds to watch list. :)
2009-02-25 [Cillamoon]: Yay! You'll see me uploading everything I'm sure. lol
2009-02-25 [Skydancer]: Excellent. Our next big work will be to teach you how to get the most possible from your camera. What is the make and model?
2009-02-25 [Cillamoon]: It's nothing really special. Sony Cybershot DSC-S700
2009-02-25 [Skydancer]: You would be amazed at what you can do with even a low end camera, its all in learning how to best use its abilities and work within its limitations. I will go find the manual, we need to see how to set the self timer on it so you do not have to keep shooting into the mirror.
2009-02-25 [Cillamoon]: Oh! I know how to set the self timer, you'll see as I get farther along in the uploading process that I figured it out finally, it was just mainly that I didn't have anything tall enough to set it on so that it would get my entire body in the shot. I have a 5 second and 10 second timer on it.
2009-02-25 [Skydancer]: ah... good, well one thing is you need to be able to set it on its end, as that is the best format for full body standing, sitting, etc. A bag of rice or beans can help with that if you do not have a tripod. Then to, its auto focus will focus when you press the shutter, not when the timer fires, so you have to have some thing, a chair or such in the space where your body will be at the time you start the timer for it to focus on, then move the chair and stand where it was.. Thats best for sharpest focus.
2009-02-25 [Cillamoon]: Okay, sounds good. All the ones that I am uploading today, or at least most of them, were taken in the same room. Unfortunately the mirror was dirty so they may seem a bit fuzzy. But eventually you'll see a different room that has a much clearer look for the photo.
2009-02-25 [Skydancer]: Excellent. Feel free to ask for any help any of us might be able to give.
2009-02-25 [Cillamoon]: Awesome, if you could just monitor my progress and let me know anything you think would be helpful, that would be wonderful. Thank you!!!!!
2009-03-11 [smakeupfx]: "her darkness" hehe, great title :D
2009-03-11 [Cillamoon]: Yes, that way I can still do a crossover for the Snow White project I am making, and still use the images for Her Darkness for the vampiric feel.

2009-03-11 [Cillamoon]: I actually have a nice stock of them in my fridge, I just need to incorporate them into the pictures...
