Hello Orchidians! Hi Beth! & Hi to Daniel too!
Beth, You received a lot of great post replies on this question you
asked a while back about Web Photo's which had some very useful
I have enjoyed reading all the info. that you received
and going to all the links & articles! : )
Which leads to the digital web photo question - some sites with
jewelry photos have lovely clear photos of lovely work. Some have
terribly blurry photos of lovely work. Is there anyone who is
digitally knowledgeable enough to explain why, and what one should
do to be sure one's work on the web falls in the first category and
not the second?
Additionally in another more recent post by Daniel, ( [Orchid] White
Plastic Bowl Photography), there was a question about lightening,
and white balance, etc... That post also received some great replies
I just wanted to post the link to a fairly new web based article on
photographing jewelry items with a digital, and preparing them for
either website use or to print to paper. It was written by Alexa
Smarsh an enamel jewelry artist. and in the article she outlines the
steps in her method for producing lovely images. She uses one of the
Nikon cameras and a Cloud Dome.
She also describes the exact light bulbs, and lighting set-up she
uses, backgrounds for shooting on, and the settings she uses for
white balance etc... The article include several helpful images both
in the text and at the bottom of the page. Make sure you click on
all the text based links within the articles text, to go to pictures
that show what is being outlined.
The article is in the current eNAMEL Online Newsletter, you can
access it through the Main Page:

I hope that the links to this article will be an addition to all the
other useful that has been posted on these subjects.
With Best Regards To All! : )
