Next Stage

Trimmed image.....

Photographing these pieces is a challenge as my ceiling is lower than the will hang and I need to get back quite far to get them in. The will be photographed at the Gallery by Tracy Olan, where the scale will be easier to see and we can shoot it from further away. This shows my usual set up to shoot in my studio with my white cloth clothes pegged up and the pieces hanging. Depending on the pieces, I shoot with white and balck backdrops. I am not happy with this image, so will be going back now to try again. I am also trying some other pieces for the Lark book...I'll get back to you!

I find the photographing part so difficult (especially if I'm not allowed to 'Photoshop' as per the instructions for the Lark Book).

In fact, I gave up for the Lark book photos and have sent my jewellery off to a pro with a great camera & lighting equipment

At least your background looks white - mine always end up looking grey!!!

Thanks Andrea but I have the white balance on its manual setting and most of the backgrounds still look grey (apart from the very closeup shots which are white). I think it may also be my lighting?

These are gorgeous Andrea.

I do not like the photographing of felt. I always find fault so prefer others to make them, but promised myself I will become good at it so keep experimenting and learning. :)
