Can't Stop the Signal

For the foreseeable future, Another Tea Blog is still on hiatus, at least until I work out the issues with the photography. Yes I could still post reviews without my pictures, but it just doesn't feel the same.

I will not give up on this blog. It has been too much fun, and I honestly feel like it is just getting started. So thank you for your patience and continued support, but I promise this is not over.

In the meantime I will be working on wikiCHA. Some friends started it a while back and have been working on it, and it has the potential of really taking off, so be sure to check it out.

New Year, New Home, New Problems

Nothing much tea related to post today, but I did want to check in and let everyone know that posts will be resuming shortly as promised. Thank you for your continuing interest in my humble blog. During my two month hiatus, I expected my hits to take a nose dive, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I have settled in nicely to my new home, and I love it. Problem is I have been here for three weeks, and I am now sure that the sun never directly touches my apartment. This is nice for sleeping in and watching movies during the day, but is dramatically effecting my photography.

What light I do get is very blue. This is easily corrected with a little editing (pictured), but still doesn't leave me with sufficient light for good quality close up shots.

I am a lazy and spoiled photographer. I am used to simply waiting for the sun to come up, adjust my exposure, and go. Now I am going to have to get a lot more familiar with white balance, and light boxes or flashes or whatever else that the less luminous blessed folks have to use.
