How to Take and Edit Great Product Photos: A tutorial Part 1

I'm no wiz at taking product photos however I am learning, and right now they are descent however they could be much better, because every time I sell a piece of jewelry the comment I always get is; "Wow! This is more beautiful than the picture! Thank you so much!" So I'm constantly in the persute of better quality photos from an armature with an armature camera...ME! The other problem I run into is I live in the Northwest of the US, and if you don't know, that is the rainy area. It usually starts raining in late September and doesn't let up till late June. So my picture opportunities are few and far between. Another words I'm always looking for some thing better so I don't have to endure hours outside on a frosty, damp, winter day!

I follow several blogs and this morning this one out of Australia caught my eye! She is talking about the things she has found in her struggles to take a great product photo, and basically I wanted to share her info with you. Who knows, she may say something you hadn't thought of and it could make all the difference in your product photography, and could lead to more success!

A swirling blue heart pendant, like the depths of a stormy sea, or the warm blues of your favorite pair of jeans. Suspended within the depths of the heart is a fiery Gilson opal. This beautiful heart was created by Jay Taylor and to accent the lovely blues with in the pendant I used vintage seed beads in an iridescent blue and aqua.

The Elusive Fall Purse

A`La Mode

Studio One Designs

Love Janice


Eyes on Me

The Leather Store

I'm on my annual search for the perfect fall purse! Like all of you, I love the Dooney and Burke, Coach, and Fossil names brands for my bag, however I can't always afford the prices (never is probably closer to the truth) and I would like to have something unusual that people are going to say "Wow! where did you get that!" So in my perusing of Etsy stores I've come up with some interesting stores that you may want to check out.
