Mailbox Love

The other day I opened my mailbox to find presents. My friend Michelle saw some vintage hankies in an antique store and thought of me. My favourite hankie is this rooster. Isn't he a charmer? Thank you Michelle!

I photographed this hankie using the Big Camera... and since I am still learning (A.K.A. making loads of mistakes) I had to shoot this 3 times before I got it close to OK. Digital photography is miles better for learning than a regular SLR where you take the pictures and then wait days or longer to see whether you have any worthy results. I learned how to change the camera's light balance to tungsten while shooting this with photo lights on a copystand.
