I've been trying my hardest to get decent photos of the necklaces and earrings that I've been making. I find it much easier making things than photographing the end results. Especially when I want to get fabulous close ups.... Ugh... no easy task. I think I'm going to have to actually google "how to take photos of necklaces & earrings" and actually read what they suggest. Nuts... I'm not a big fan of following directions reading~ Hmmm maybe I'll be lucky enough to hit upon a slide show of photos on "how to" do it.....I would like to have a light box, maybe even a tripod with it all set up ready to go.....

Ugh, I know what you mean. I don't particularly like taking pictures because they never come out how I'd want them. They get blurry for close-ups or the lighting's not right....wish I had my own personal photographer!

Boy, if you find out how let me know! I struggle with that also, and like you it's harder to take the pictures than to make the jewelry..by the way your jewelry is fabulous!:O)

I know what you mean. I don't like reading instructions either, or even watching how-to videos. If I can't figure it out on my own, I just say to heck with it. Your jewelry is pretty no matter how you photograph it. Have a great day. Tammy
