Ugh. I've had an on again, off again relationship with cameras. Certain pictures I have no problem with but others just don't work so well for me. Anyway, this one has had me in knots all day. I like it and then I don't. I know that much of it is that I'm trying to work on using gradient backgrounds and new props. But man, NOTHING beats outdoor pictures or natural light.
Neither of which are plentiful in a wintery redwood forest! Sigh.
