with Rob Bowker and Alan Seaver's encouragement
I decided to finally try to take some catalog-style photos of my collection.
these are the results of my first attempt.
after a bit of adjusting color balance and brightness in photoshop
I've gotten some very good results
but also run into a few problems getting the background to be white enough.
I've had surprisingly good results so far, mostly,
and with time I'll figure out what I'm doing.
all it took was this giant piece of cardstock, a whiteboard, a sunny day, and my Fuji X10.
