rickiebeth1: the colors are pretty
DTIntermart: yea I cnt figure out how to get a clear pic, it's so
DTIntermart: WIRE on top & bottom
Shannon: did you try indirect lighting Doug?
jill_z_q: doug is trying to make us go crossed eyed
countrylady100ca left the room
DTIntermart: yes it reflects in the dichro & blurs, and the falsh
makes it worse...
countrylady100ca joined the room
DTIntermart: sorry Jill
Shannon: how about natural flash?
jill_z_q: yeah I take all my pics outside :)
alixnc: If you are using a digital camera, it can solve low light
probs better than glare
DTIntermart: Hmm, I have to try that... when we have a sunny day
whhich aint often,,,
Shannon: LOL
DTIntermart: Alix that is a good point...
jill_z_q: you don't need a sunny day
alixnc: rotat flas to bounce bqac at <45 degrees from piture plane
DTIntermart: wont it be too gary on a cloudy day?
Shannon: I hate it when things are too gary.... ;-)
DTIntermart: Cant rotate the flash it's fixed in one angle....
Shannon: might cover your flash with something
DTIntermart: LOL gary = gray
countrylady100ca left the room
hlynn1975: DT, if things are to cloudy get one of the reveal bulbs
and put it in a desk lamp that you shine on the piece. Its almost as
good as sunlight
Shannon: hehehe
DTIntermart: =))
countrylady100ca joined the room
alixnc: LMAO claylady hard bouncing bqac too
jill_z_q: only problem with it be cloudy is it might be too dark
outside and the flash will go off
Shannon: bqac???
meplus5kids joined the room
jill_z_q: back
jill_z_q: you need to learn typonese Shannon ;)
poonkie2: do you have a digital camera?
alixnc: just my rotten typing
DTIntermart: Yes
Shannon: LOL
poonkie2: did you try macro
Shannon: I thought it was one of those initial words.... LOL
jill_z_q: shoots everything in macro
DTIntermart: I did that was macro.. standard came out white...
jill_z_q: Just take it outside in the morning and take a pic :)
alixnc: no, just severe dysgraphia ... according to the tests, my
Handwriting IQ is 67
poonkie2: try manual
Fearless Leader: ok, see the ribbon the blend made?
jill_z_q: cause its 6 there right?
rossija9 left the room
Rossija (rossija9) joined the room
rjchase222: yep got it NJ
Fearless Leader: we have dark green on one end and light green on
the other
jill_z_q: yeah you and rest of us Alix :P
MountainMaMaDuke: Someone told me a trick with digital cameras, put
your finger across half of the flash sensor, it does cut down the
whiteness of a photo
Fearless Leader: we'll roll this up like a jelly roll with the light
green in the center and the dark green as the outer edge
Kat Indpls IN: i used to make my teachers mad by writing some of my
papers backwords
MountainMaMaDuke: mine takes closeups too white, and long distances
too dark
rickiebeth1: KAT!!!!
poonkie2: i used to have problems taking pictures but now, I use
manual settings
rickiebeth1: funny
DTIntermart: That is a good Idea Poonkie
Kat Indpls IN: lol i write backwards and can read upside down drives
ppl nutzzz
rickiebeth1: so can I..
jill_z_q: isn't that dyslexia?
poonkie2: So, no more problems, even if it's dark outside
Fearless Leader: For new clayers, this is what I refer to as the
Jelly Roll blend
pasadena_cal: Reading upside down - Most important when going to
DR's office
Kat Indpls IN: form of it, your right side of your brain is suppose
to go with the left side of your body and vise versa well mine
doesnt LOL
Fearless Leader: we do a blend and then roll it up
rickiebeth1: not if done intentional..I do not think
alixnc: jill one form of dyslexia
poonkie2: took me 2 months to figure it out....
Fearless Leader: it gives a look of highlight and shadow
MountainMaMaDuke: got you so far NJ
Kat Indpls IN: can write with both left and right hands and only
play sports with my left hand
Shannon: looks pretty just like that!
Kat Indpls IN: so guess you could say im and south and north paw LMAO
rjchase222: Yes I've done this now what cause this is all the
farther I've ever gotten with it!
Fearless Leader: now before I reduce it I have to save log and send,
go out and come back in.
