I’m looking to start a conversation regarding photography in the shop/of jewelry and sales, if that’s not too much in one. I know lots of us spend ample time photographing our jewelry and processes - for end use in social media, online shops and education
I photograph pretty casually, I use my phone and am happy with the ease of use and quality is good enough for me
I’m looking for a camera tripod (not sure if tripod is exactly the right word) that can be clamped anywhere in the shop and hold my phone securely, and hopefully be flexible or jointed so the camera angle can be adjusted in several directions. I want to take more photos of my works in progress/myself in the studio and still have both hands free. Also potentially plan to use it for shots once I have a light box set up. Any others have one they recommend or a good place to purchase?
anyone have tips for setting up a light box for shooting? Maybe there’s even an article here I’ve missed for setting one up. How do you deal with the glare that is so common when photographing silver pieces??
finally, for those of you selling online what are your favourite websites /platforms that you have used? I have some experience with Etsy but am exploring other options. Any one have experience with the new “square” website option? Shopify?
