For the first time, I have joined a meet-up group get-together yesterday: etsyRAIN Team! They were all very nice, enthusiastic and talented Etsy ladies; some with well established Etsy stores and some with new stores-like my Cup of Sparkle. I truly enjoyed my time and learned from them.
It is not the first time that I started thinking I need better photographs for my jewelry shop; but, I think now I have a better idea how to do it (kind of) and where to start. I discovered a new blog of one of the etsyRAIN team leaders, Marlo M. Her blog is about small object photography which is exactly what I need. She has great tips about lighting and composition in her blog. She teaches photography as well.
If you are interested, her blog website is: http://smallobjectphotography.com/
Marlo has some before and after pictures of arts, mostly jewelry on her blog. I wanted to share one before and after photography for my bird nest brooch pin with you.
What do you think? I would like to hear your honest opinions. I have not used any of these pictures on my Etsy shop for this brooch yet. I think I have a lot of room to improve here.
