1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / photographing my jewelry? on: January 08, 2004 11:01:25 AM
So, I'm having a wretched time getting good pictures of my jewelry, and unfortunately, that's the one thing I need to be able to set up a good website, send things out for review for consignment, put things on eBay, etc.  It's entirely my own photography skill, I think - I have a Fuji Finepix 2600 camera, which is decent enough; I just suck.  To top it off, the kinds of parts I use tend to be extra sparkly (lots of rhinestones and Swarovski) so I end up with lots of glare and blur (or else totally dead-looking pictures), and when the crystals aren't blurred, the other parts are.

The best I've gotten so far was from taking out one end of a shoebox (with a white interior), taping some string across to hang earrings off of (the bulk of what I do), putting a paper towel over the top, and then shining my gooseneck lamp over the towel and taking the picture from the open front of the box.  This is, however, one extra-crappy lightbox.  Am I even on the right track?

What are some solutions people have come up with for getting better pictures of any craft?  My talent definitely does not like with the camera!
