I made these necklaces awhile back, but I never shared them because I wasn't sure how to photograph them. These days I've been reading up on photography tips and trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. I don't think these came out that bad. Basically I covered up a piece of card board with foil. Then I covered up a second piece of cardboard up with more foil. The first piece I used for my surface. The 2nd piece I used to reflect more light on the necklace. I like the look, but there is a little bit too much of a glare from the window. My cousin came over and said that I should cover the window with a sheer type white piece of material and try to photograph it on a black piece of material. That will be my project for next week. For now these pictures do seem to look a lot better than the ones that I shot in the light box that I made. I'm not going to give up on the light box quite yet. I got some more tips on how to use it. I forgot to tell you, I propped the pendant up on a binder clip and that seemed to work out nicely. My cousin suggested using glue dots or that poster putty next time. Thank God for digital photography and that we don't have to process and pay for every single picture to be developed. I think I wasted so much money and pictures when I was younger. The sad thing is that it is getting harder and harder to find 35mm film and places to develop it. I guess that's progress for you. Let me know if you like the pictures. Have a great week and enjoy the rest of the pictures.
