Well, fall came in with a bang today. As in, loud thunderclaps, bright flashes of lightening, gloomy skies and pouring rain. It reminded me that I really need to learn how to use the light box that I bought last year and never got around to using.
In between downpours, when the sun peeked out, I managed to snap some shots of this pumpkin soap I made. Pumpkin soap is one of my fall/winter favorites to make, I love using pumpkin and heavy (whipping) cream in my soaps. I am picky about my pumpkin fragrances though, I tend to like ones that are more pumpkin than spice. This one I used is a new pumpkin fragrance for me and it’s not too heavy on the spice at all and actually has a maple note to it, which I really like. The maple was unexpected, and next time I will try adding some maple syrup to the soap to carry through with the pumpkin maple theme:
PS - do any of you know of any good tutorials for learning how to use a light box? The one I have is a ‘studio-in-a-box photo tent’, and I really need to learn how to use it before the shorter, gloomy days set in! Or, I would love any any gloomy/dark day photo tips you could offer!
Thanks for reading, and I hope you all have a great week!
