trying new things

my poor camera has been saved from dormancy
playing with new styles of photographing my work

what do you think? really.

I like them. I think the white feather is a little hard to photograph without blowing it out - maybe you have another soft ocean theme item you can use instead. The orange composition looks good - it is well lit.

Photographing my pieces in an interesting manner is something I am working on as well, and boy is it difficult! Looks like you're doing well so far though!

Thanks, Valerie! :)

Yes, it's always hard to think of interesting ways to photograph jewelry without pulling too much attention away from the piece(s).

Here's to trying new things !

I like them! The orange one has a lovely balance, and will stick out nicely in, say, a treasury on etsy.

well done!

I think they are both wonderful, Lynsey! I love the soft lighting, the composition of elements... really beautiful :-)

Photographing my jewellery is something I am learning about every single day. Constantly re-shooting, tweaking, finding new props...

Having a new camera (a surprise from hubby) has only made the task ever so slightly easier :-)

Have a fab weekend!

Cat: "balance:" yes, there's something a little sen-like with arranging these little fellows.
merci :)

Belinda: thanks so much! :)
yes, photographing jewelry is tricky. wanting to capture the realistic shape, size, color... and at the same time desiring to create a mood or feeling through the image.

ou, i hope you're enjoying the new camera!
