Spare black fabric
Anyone that makes their own jewellery knows one thing, that one thing is that trying to take a good picture of your creations can be a bitch. I was looking around some forums when I saw a post by a woman who said she uses a scanner and a black piece of material on top of the jewellery to get some decent images. I had tried the scanning method before, with a white sheet of paper, but didn’t get good results. So I was a bit hesitant, yet since I had some spare black fabric and not much to do a few nights ago, I decided to give it a go anyway. Amazingly, I got some pretty good results and I’ve added the pictures to the jewellery section.
The only problem is you can only use this method for flat jewellery; any piece that uses large lampwork type beads tends to become quite blurry, as you can see in the image below.
Oh well, when I get a better camera I’ll be able to take some good shots of all my pieces that use lampwork beads.
