Photographing Your Creations

If you have an online shop, you need good photographs of your work.  Cloudy days work best for this - providing it's not raining.  The sunlight is diffused and does not cast harsh shadows.  This is an excellent thing to remember when photographing portraits of people and animals, as well.

I do find I have an exception to this rule.  I like to photograph my jewelry on sunny, winter days, when there's light glittering off the jewels/stones.  Save photographing crystals for cloudy days, though.  I can't get my camera to focus on crystals in the sunlight; the sparkles throw off my auto-focus.

Rainy Days.....

Chilly, rainy days are good time to snuggle up with a hot cup of coffee and create a masterpiece!
