Ever notice that you often end up doing things for a living you
never really planned to do? I have always photographed my own work,
if for no other reason than to keep a record of my designs. Of
course, when the web came around, I took pictures for my sites etc. A
couple of years ago, another jeweler and friend, Q Evon, asked me to
try shooting her work for her website with a simple white background.
Since then, I’ve been working to improve my photography skills and
my editing skills. I am doing the gradient and such in
Photoshop…with a technique I worked out myself…so, I’d like to
share some of the shots I’ve done for others…feedback welcome.
with silver up over $30/oz, and the local economy, jewelry sales
have been down for me and this is a service I’m trying to offer at an
affordable price to others…There aren’t many people around here
doing this kind of work. So far, it’s been mostly word of mouth as I
have worked to perfect a technique for my shots…but I’m hoping it
will take off this year.
