Photography - New Monitor!
(Hallowe'en, 2023)

All images of items for sale were taken by Helen Tyson, using a Canon Rebel T2i EOS 550D (usually with a macro lens, Canon EF 100 mm F 2.8), under a 5000K artificial light source.

Images were processed in Corel PhotoPaint 2021. All images posted on/after October 31, 2023 were processed using a 2023 ViewSonic/ColorPro monitor (Pantone validated, professionally installed and calibration checked).
