There's a process to what I do. Part of that process is I make jewelry, take pictures, update website, and mail packages. Seems simple enough right? Well of all the above, the most daunting is taking pictures and updating the website. That's what I've been doing the past few days and most of this past weekend. I'm no professional photographer by any means, and with each photo session, I'm discovering something new.
This is my camera, it's a Nikon 5400, and I absolutely love it!! This is also the same sick camera from a few months back...but she's all fixed up now!
I must admit I had become pretty content with my photos, recently and had even gotten a little lazy about trying to make them better, until last night, when I was trying to shoot some close up shots of a few metal pieces and boy were the lights giving me a fit! You see, light + metal = bright glare, and I can't have that in a jewelry shot unless I'm shooting diamonds and diamonds I have not!
I started with one pair of earrings and 69 shots later, I was still on that first pair of earrings. I tried everything I could think of to cut down on the glare...then a light bulb went off as I closed shop to head upstairs. I remembered these little cover thingy's that had come with my light box..that I had never opened called light diffusers...duuuhhh!! So of course I had to see what they'd do and look at what a difference they made! Even the true color of the bag came out!
And by the way, this is a new pair of earrings for the fall season called "Hollow Dreams" , if you just have to have them before they make it to the website, by all means contact me :).
