Filigree and photography

It’s been so long since I blogged that I had to request a new password… apologies to our subscribers for the lack of posts. There has been a lot of distractions during the last 8 months. Doka and I are now back in Korcula and I am working on the social media side of our business in anticipation of a big 2013 season.

During a recent layover at Singapore airport we purchased a new camera, a Lumix GF5, and we have been experimenting with the lenses and settings. During the duty-free demonstration we were impressed with how the macro lens picked out details in the filigree ring I was wearing at the time.

We look forward to sharing more images with you in future blog posts.

  1. Hi Ruth,
    Great that you are back blogging!

    Can I make a suggestion that I think will help? I clicked the link to the image of the rings and I see that it is a whopping 1.2MB. At that rate, you are going to fill your media allocation on WordPress pretty quickly.

    What you need to do is to save the image at a web size. There are lots of ways of doing this – some better than others. TimeThief at has some very good articles about this. I have just asked her which article she recommends, and I’ll pass that along to you.

      Hi David
      Thanks I hadn’t noticed that – good to know and nice to know someone reading the blog!
      Much appreciate your feedback, maybe can change settings on camera too…. will investigate.
      Cheers, Ruth

    don.t change settings on camera ruth, otherwise you can.t use the pictures for anything else than web, no printing, no x-mas cards ……
    make the pix with the highest resolution you can get, save them on the HD, copy them (just to make sure to keep the originals) and then reduce them for web: photoshop, gimp, a good shareware imageprocessing program, … i will be happy to assist you

    and welcome back to europe, missed you heaps
