Great Photography Tips "Technique Tuesday" Artisan Beaders Blog

Whether you love taking photos of your handcrafted jewelry or you totally dread it, The Artisan Beaders Blog has a wonderful and informative post this week regarding photography. As I'm sure others can relate, taking photos of finished jewelry pieces can be a real pain. When I first began taking photos of my jewelry, I was so excited! Little did I know what a difficult task it would be! I soon learned that there was a lot more to taking jewelry photos, and I needed to do some researching. First and foremost, they need to be clear, and they need to show all the details of the piece...and from different angles.

Now that I've been photographing my jewelry for almost 3 years, I like to think I've gotten better at it. I still have my days where I can take upteen million photos and not have any of them turn out right, and other days, they turn out great. But I almost always have to edit them to lighten them up. Since I sell mainly online, my photos need to feel as if a buyer is picking them up and looking at them at all angles. And this is what I keep in mind while taking photos. Props are great too, just as long as they don't take away from the object you are photographing. Read more about props and other important information in the "Technique Tuesday" post on the Artisan Beaders Blog. :-)



Thanks for the tips! There is ALWAYS room to better your photographs. Thanks for posting this!
