The pictures are too dark - can you find some daylight and do this again? L

From what I can make out the actual origami looks good. Unless you can use something like Photoshop to adjust the images you've got? Web-cam? L
hey lemonie, do you work for instructables, its just that i find your comments on almost every instructable i view, and your comments are helpful
No, I just spend a long time looking. I try to be helpful, but I'm not always. Do you ever look at Answers - a few of us try to be helpful there.
