Ture Colors.....

BG and I went shopping today - for light box components.  While he was napping - I went to work.  Then I cracked open my class notes, my camera manual, and with great trepidation.....experimented.  WOW!  It works!  I need more practice, but so far, so good......
This is my latest yarn, (Rosequartz colorway of Ashland Bay Merino) which I took to TNKG for "show n tell" last night.  It's a heather, and we were looking at the little specks of green and orange..... and one of the gals said she wished she could see what the unspun fiber looked like.  Well, here it is:
The colors are pretty much right on.
Here are my three latest spinning efforts - even the red came out right on!  I guess setting that "Custom White Balance" thingy is the secret!  This could become quite fun.......

I love all your handspun today! Hm, where do you find that setting? I'm way over my head with my new camera. The book it came with is pretty thick, and so boring to read. :o)

How beautiful the yarn is, The colors are gorgeous. I love to see the before and after - it is like opening a surprise - how rewarding it must be to see what each roving produces.

I agree - great job with the photos - and the spinning!

Both the handspun and the photos are excellent! I'm amazed at the colors that are in fiber that provide depth. Who ever thought to put orange in that rose yarn?

I don't think I have a white balance thingy and I know I don't have a light box :-(
Beautiful photos and yarn!

So beautiful! I really need to make a light box, too. I've been telling myself to do so for the last couple years. Where did you get the instructions?? The yarn is so very lovely!
