I have made a discovery which I would like to share with all of you
knowledgable, sharing, terrific jewelry people.
I have been reading with much interest your suggestions for setting
up product photography shoots for jewlery because I am struggling
with this myself. (I still can’t locate the clear putty someone
mentioned!) So,on the eve of a photo shoot, I panicked because once
again, things were going to be askew. Then, I spied a ripe banana in
the kitchen fruit bowl.
I grabbed the banana, covered it up with some beautiful Japanese
white rice paper that I use for bookbinding, pulled the backs off
post earrings, stuck them through the paper into the hidden banana
and presto!! Great photos, earrings didn’t tip over, and I didn’t
have to search online to find it. A minor cleanup of banana gook
seemed a small price to pay. I think the same thing can be achieved
with styrofoam underneath, if you are out of ripe bananas.
There you have it. You gotta have a sense of humor…
With thanks to all of you, Diana Widman at Birch Tree Studio
PS: Where can I get that clear putty and also the studio in a box (if
there is one that doesn’t cost $3000!!)
