Awhile ago (like, years ago), I wrote a blog about jewelry photography tips. I can't say I was a professional then, or that I'm a professional now, but I have made some pretty drastic improvements over the years (both in my photography skills and in my jewelry designs), and here's the proof!
|Scanner "photograph" - feeling dizzy yet?!|
|Too close, too busy!|
|Ah, models...and 2-toned photographs....|
|Look, no border! But what is that color?!|
|Black on black is kinda like yeti in snowstorms - invisible....|
|Ah! That border! The background is looking better....|
|Very clear, crisp, and a bit clinical.|
|Sterling silver washes out with a white background, however....|
|Here, the sterling silver pops & the prop adds to the overall effect.|
The last photograph is where I hope my new photographs will be - still crisp and clear, but a little warmer, a little friendier.... Hope you enjoyed the nostalgic (or maybe nauseating) trip down memory lane!
Happy Creating (and Photographing!),
