More Nail Polish Necklaces

I’ve decided to photograph some more of my old craft project necklaces and list them for sale on Etsy. At first, I shot them with the 500 watt bulb and no diffusion, but I decided that was a bit harsh for most of them. I’ve kept one shot from that shoot.

After looking around a bit to see how others photographed similar necklaces for sale. I decided to use window light, reflectors, and the scrim as I felt I needed it. I also changed the backgrounds.

As before, very little retouch was done on these for truth in advertising.

And yes, the shameless commerce division (as they say on Car Talk): https://www.etsy.com/shop/NecklaceArtAndCraft?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Next Time: Snow or Valentine’s Day


Necklaces

It’s been awhile since I did a jewelry post, so I thought I could use some practice photographing jewelry about now. In my estimation, it’s still a bit early for a Christmas post. However, the holidays are upon us, so I stuck with warmer colors and included some red and green.

Love

Since Valentine’s day is next week, I thought I’d use this post to show some of my ideas and feelings about love. I’ll openly admit I don’t know much of anything about romantic love, so most of my thoughts are innocent and simple.

Purity, simplicity, and innocence; a love of family and friends.

 

Blushing and awkward; the first time someone likes you, and you don't know how to feel.

 

Deep, sincere, and lasting; love for what really matters.

 

Next: Monotone

Being a bit tired of jewelry, I’ve decided to do some more abstract black and white next week. This may or may not include snow shots. It will be digital, and I’ll probably tint a lot of them. Hold on to your hat, next week’s gonna be different.
