I want to tell you about what I've been up to- it seems I'm always busy, but I just never put it together that I have actually been taking a lot of photos of it all!
Here's what I was doing today, for instance:
This is one of my studio tables, where I was taking new product shots of my butterfly wing necklaces. This is actually where I take ALL of my product shots. Its just on a board that I can move around with white printer paper on top. This way when the paper gets dirty or wrinkled I can discard it and get a new sheet. There are several pieces in a little pile, so the background of my photos is opaque white. The light is always form the natural daylight, which, of course, poses problems when it's a crappy day or dark outside. Also, now the leaves are turning orange, casting an orange glow onto it all.
Heres how the photos came out after I touched them up a little:What do you think? I needed new photos for my necklace listing, which didn't, in my opinion, have enough examples of how your necklace may turn out. Now I think having extra photos may persuade someone a little more to buy it. If you can't touch an object before you buy it, you need a lot of photos, or really great photos, and both is best. This is what I'm working on!
