As you can see, I'm still working on getting the perfect shot of teacups, and I still don't have it, but I think I'm closer than I was a few weeks ago!
I don't quite have enough to fill up my small dining room table. The 56 I assembled here are almost all of the bone china teacups I have, with a few that are earthenware but look like china.
I decided I didn't want any repetition, so if a teacup is part of a set, I used only one teacup for my photo.
My husband looked a little nervous when he came downstairs and saw the dining table looking like this.
I told him not to worry, there's no tea party planned this week, that I was just playing around with photos again.
He said he knew I'd tell him what he needed to know when he needed to know it. Ha!
What I really need, I've decided, is a professional stylist who can arrange these things for me and a professional photographer who can tell me what lighting and camera settings to use. (Or I could read my camera manual, and we all know that's not going to happen anytime soon.)
Until then, my dining room table is out of service!
