the hardest thing i have to do today

Have you ever had to photograph something to sell? Have you ever had to take a picture of a black dress or a black shirt?

I obviously have the wrong equipment because although my phone camera refuses to focus correctly on a pair of black Ralph Lauren jeans I am trying to sell – it still has the resolution of a microscope.

I’ve got pets – all rescues – and no matter how much I clean, vacuum, dust, and wipe – I literally have to remove every speck of lint on any dark surface with a fist full of tape.

Because I just want to sell the jeans, but the pictures take hours to get right.

And I am never leaving the house wearing a black t-shirt ever again.
