I have been working on updating my jewelry photos for my Etsy jewelry site to make them more interesting. A lot of time I will just scan them on my scanner but I wanted to learn how to use my digital camera better.
So on wednesday, I spent most of my day taking lots of photos, and about half of them worked out well. Oh the joy of digital-no film wasted! You can see the difference if you visit my jewelry store. I think the first 5 or 6 listings have the changes to the photos made. I will be updating more, and all my new listings will be photographed with my camera.
On the days I work at home, my cat Tiger likes to wander in and out of the house to see what I am up to. So I had my whole photography set up arranged on my kitchen table and Tiger decides he needs to get a close look at what I am doing, and then he needs to get inside the photo box and lay down. This is Tiger's way of helping, laying on top of what I am working on.
So then I figure, if he is going to get in the box on me, I am going to try to get him to model one of my jewelry pieces. Here are the results.
And my favorite photo before he had to run off...
Tiger is the best. He was so patient and actually stayed with that necklace on for about a minute or two. I was amazed that he let me do that. I was sure that was the quickest way to get him away from my work area.
I'm sorry the photos are a bit fuzzy. In my excitement to get him photographed, I forgot to change my camera settings. I don't know if he will give me this opportunity again, but if he does, I will remember that time.
