WOYWW #202 Video setup

Whats on Your My Work Desk Wednesday
I was testing my camera tripod to see how it went with taking photos on its own or even a video. Opps can still see the Ichiban noodle box (still full of noodles) being used as a photographic prop lol
The drape of blue was used to photograph the wedding shoe I made. You can see the shoe on my craft blog. The drape to the right was just hanging there as I had the material ironed and didn't want it to crease when I needed it. I still love this U-shaped set up....
....this desk seems to be used as a 'spare' desk now as I cast a shadow over my work when I sit at it, I don't like working in my shadow....
 I went to a fundraising for breast cancer craft day on the weekend run by Capa and Cate Revill, the bag is still unpacked as I was sick on the weekend as well and have not ventured downstairs to unpack.
This is the desk that was meant to be a spare but it is my favourite one to work on because of the lighting. Beautiful flowers that I purchased from Ann-Maree at Craftyas.

Hop on over to Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground to visit vicariously more desks around the world to see what everyone is up to.

Can I move into this room please? I feel right at home and the camera set ups are brilliant. I have to either shoot on the floor or go outside...My hubby has swiped my "spare" table! #34

Janene McAnally said...

Oh wow I know I keep saying it but what a GREAT craft room and so much going on in there! My lighting is terrible and I am thinking of ways to make it better that doesn't cost a lot. Happy WOYWW.

That's an impressive craft space. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Waving hi from the bears @#78 this week.

Love the look of that camera and set up - awesome!! I hate working in my shadow too, so I don't blame you working on your 'spare' desk.
Blessings

I am so aware that my blog photography is very much catch-as-catch-can - weird angles, shadows, blurry and at time it does a great disservice to the project. I tend to work, with my camera to the side, and grab it snap a photo, plunk it down again (hopefully not in a puddle of paint!) and carry, then grab & snap at the next step. You are far more dedicated that me. Your room looks like a fun place to play - mummmmmm...noodles!

Deb said...

I love your U shaped set up too, that would be my preference in here as I am always shuffling between 2 tables, alas it wouldn't work in my little room! Maybe when I do my next do over!

You have a lovely space to work and the photography set ups so clever. I still can't take pictures of my cards without them looking wonky!

Hi Bridgett,

I have said it before you do have an amazing space and I am so envious that you can just change tables when ever you want.

Sounds like you had a great time at the crop.

The little stand I got from the KaiserCraft Shop and it is a book stand, I just want to use it for cards.

Happy WOYWW

Caro said...

Lots of interesting things happening there..I love your camera set up with the two desks. So professional looking! Happy WOYWW. Thanks for sharing. Caro #120

aworkofheart said...

It is obvious that you love taking pictures and you are very creative at the pictures you take. I would never have thought to drape some fabric behind my cards to make them stand out a little bit. You also have quite the stash , lots to create with...so much fun to see...Hope you are feeling better and will have lots of time to craft this week, Hugs, Cathryn #141

Lea Brawn said...

What a fab workspace. If only I had the room.....I would fill it!
Best wishes Lea

Gita said...

Lots of craftiness with lots of space. Love it. Heck, I can't wait myself to see how my first project will turn out with my Cinch. I'm super excited to get started on it. I love scrapbooking too so this just takes it to another/different level. :-) Brigita #97

Nikki said...

Oh I'd love to work in a U shape so everything is so easy to grab must remember this for when we get a new place ... and it's never to early for xmas cards lol I hate to rush making them when it's time to bake yummy cookies :) hugs Nikki 6

Anna said...

Love the camera setup!! I need serious help when it comes to getting more light into my craft area. Thanks for sharing your desks with us!
Anna #123

Jean said...

Wow so much going on! I daydream about a camera setup. I don't really have a good way to take those pictures.

Meihsia Liu said...

Wooo.. your camera tripod looks awesome! Love your busy room, full of fun stuff. Thank you for sharing! ^_^

Tertia said...

Love yhe camera set up, it looks like a science fiction movie. That blue fabric is gorgeous and the desks, well... can I come over and play? There are so many lovely things to look at.
Happy WOYWW!

Queen Lightwell said...

Isn't it funny how we can set something up just so, and yet it still works out better another way? :) Love all that you have going on and thanks for showing us lots of pictures. And thanks for stopping by my desk and leaving me a comment already. I do hope you are recovered from your weekend illness by now. :) Deeyll #139

Jackie said...

What a great space you have
Would live to be there

Lizzie said...

Wow Bridget, what a huge work-area! I also have more than one desk - it's so handy - one for mess and one for work, eh!

I love your camera set-up too. I have a small digi-snapshot camera, which has to "do" for me, but Mr LizzieMade bought me a mini tripod for my birthday last year and my niece gave me a pop-up light box - both very useful. One day, I will have a HUGE camera like yours!

You're certainly very busy - wedding shoes, lovely cards, crafting weekends (sorry you were sick)... lots going on. I haven't visited your blog before, but I'll keep an eye out for new posts in future!

Barb King said...

Great photo set up, mine is rinky dink, but I do have great natural light in my space. You have lots going on. Barb #132

Evelyn S. said...

Oh to have that space! My photo set-up is NOT working well, at all. It's a space between an east-facing window and a bed--not enough space, either. Looks as if you have a nice sturdy tripod; I've been using my lighter-weight one, but I think I need to pull out the heavy one.

Hi Bridget,

Isn't it interesting what you'll find to use as a prop! I bought a small camera that I can carry in my purse and I'm finding that I really need to be steady with it -- but I sure don't want to carry around a tripod!

Nice looking work area this week, as always.

Hope you are feeling better soon! And thanks for visiting me!
Happy WOYWW

Love the camera set up! And look at all the wonderful stash. Finally getting do my woyww snooping. WOYWWer #3. Nan G

RosA said...

WOW Bridget, you've sure got a lot going on there! There is so much stuff in your "room" I don't know where to look first!
The little box from Sandra is an "altered box", that is, it was used for something else before it was decorated. It's about 10 x 7 cm and the inside slides out with a little ribbon tab. Amongst all the bits and pieces decorating it there is alcohol ink used for most of the colouring, I think. It IS lovely, isn't it?
