The crapiest light in the universe couldn't make your pieces look bad! These are so wonderful and earthy. I love the birdy bracelet most best:)
Its so cold here now...it must be Much colder where you are! Brrrr.Your pictures are pretty good I think. I tend to take mine at night...not a good thing either, but I like these and the peices are really nice!
Yeah, I take most of mine in a light tent. Pittsburgh weather is too hazy most of the time and too unpredictable. I love natural lighting but for us Northerners it's kind of a must.
Love, love, love the last pair of earrings!
thank you all so much!I think i am going to put the earrings in my shop this morning. those pics came out the best out of all of them.
I made a light box out of a white styrophome (sp?) cooler. Cut a hole in the top and stick a daylight buld through it. it turned out great and cheap! However, i have noticed some pieces still aren't turning out the brightest when i use props so i've off to find desk lights this weekend. Your pics always look great to me though but you will love the lighbox too; you can take your pictures ANYTIME!!! good luck!
I love them all!! Those little heart earrings are calling to me though, they are so sweet, but earthy at the same time :)And your pictures are great, you don't need to retake them.HugsMarie
These photos look just great to me. I always have to adjust the lighting in Photoshop and sometimes the color too - but then again I always have to wait until the morning light coming thru the back door and no clouds. I have thought of a light box but never invested the $$.
You'll love having a light box! Of course, if you live in a neighborhood like mine, you might miss all the stares from the neighbors as you arrange your jewelry for photos outside. :)
I always assumed you had some professional photo setup! Your photos are flawless. You must fix your lighting problems in a photo editor b/c I've never seen any color irregularities in your photos. Natural light is really problematic in the winter though, I think b/c of the oblique angle--it's very blue green. I've had good luck with full spectrum daylight bulbs from the grocery store in the winter (although I always have to do a little correcting!)
I got my light tent at harbor freight. They are about $30 there. I use 2 halogen lights on the sides to illuminate the work
I know...I think that will help make the difference with my pictures, too..Thomas has a small one somewhere...but, I will likely make do until we finish the (umpteenth) office makeover...I've decided I need more workspace, so the daybed is moving to another room and I am going to get a table...So, somewhere along the way, the mini light tent will find a home...
This is my light tent. I made it myself.http://rosebud101-fortheloveofbeads.blogspot.com/2009/12/looking-back-bit-to-goals-for-2009.html
Light, schmight. Your stuff is gorgeous anyway. I'm loving these new things!
That's so funny -- I love your photos, and I'm trying to move away from my light tent and TO natural light because of the nice photos I see like yours!
I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments! Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.Buddha
