Taking good photos of jewellery isn't easy!
(apparently I just need to understand the basics of photography :-)
So - I am trying to learn from any source I can - mostly online tutorials, but also books and advice from friends. I have ordered a simple light tent, which should arrive soon, but in the meantime I am improvising.
These photos were taken on white tiles, a tip I learnt from a youtube tutorial.
The photos are of my seaweed earrings (version #1) which are a bit too big, but version #2 are not quite finished yet.
I have been working on 'depth of field' and using a tripod and a remote controle.
I am quite happy with these results - who knew a tripod would make such a difference :-)
So - hopefully when I am ready to put up some new pieces of jewellery, I can make them look their best.
