124/366--Sew Whats New?

In case you didnt know tam has been taking a mini sewing for beginners class and has been sewing up a storm,shes made a few awesome pillow cases (high 5) and is working on learning how to make a pair of pants. So the other day when she was working away i thought id grab my camera and take a few photos. To me sewing has this older style feel to it and i thought that for sure toning this photo in sepia would help give it that old feel and now i just wanted to make sure i had some heavy lighting in there, something really aggressive and moody and working with a white object(the sewing machine) in the frame surrounded by all the negative darker space i had to make sure i exposed my image with that highlight kinda under control and the thing is that the only good part about that sewing machine being white is that it would reflect in some light onto tams face--(it acted like a white reflector) and poped the light back just where i needed it. So after a hour or so passed tam was cutting and threading away all kinds of material and now we have a new awesome pillow case for the couch! So ya better watch out cause im sure by next year tams gonna be on one of those designer shows getting all kinds of deals, sew you better put your order in now for those 3 piece suits, but for real i wish you best tam in all your new creations tam. Sew er up!
