Garden Fresh Strawberries

Bowl of Strawberries

I have a wonderful strawberry patch in my backyard. It starts producing around the end of May and I am still picking strawberries into September or October. Some harvests are more plentiful than others but I am always grateful for the fruit that my strawberry patch provides. When my little patch is really producing, I like to show off my harvest on social media. These pictures are from one of those times.

Back in the late spring, I had just gotten my first SHOTBOX prototype and I hadn't played with it too much yet. I wanted to take a quick picture of this amazing strawberry harvest to post on Facebook and Instagram so I sat the bowl down on my kitchen table and snapped a quick pic. My husband suggested that I take another picture in my SHOTBOX. I hadn't really thought about doing that because, like I said, the SHOTBOX was a new thing for me and it wasn't foremost in my mind. But I went ahead and set up my SHOTBOX with a wood plank base and a ceramic tile background and snapped a few pictures. I was amazed at the difference! The picture on my kitchen table is not as crisp and clear as the one in my SHOTBOX. The kitchen table has a glare on it that is reflecting onto the strawberries. The colors aren't quite as vibrant on my table. Overall, my kitchen table just didn't produce as nice a picture as my SHOTBOX! These were the first pictures that showed me what a difference a SHOTBOX can make! Now I am a believer!

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
