It's week 33 and 34 for the Art Jewelry Elements Blog year long earring challenge. And what a challenge it was for me this week. These photos show how much I struggled with photographing just one pair of earrings.
These earrings are made with Scorched Earth green/brown dangles and those large 'honey colored' vintage balls. It was the vintage balls that gave me grief. First, they were too large to photograph laying flat so I put them on this pottery shard. But look how orange they are!
Next I folded a piece of card stock and hung them. This is a bit better, but still doesn't show the wonderful honey color.
So I took them outside and put them on cinder blocks. A bit better but still very orange.
Getting very frustrated by now
Outside on a black surface. All washed out but getting closer to the honey color.
Outside with the card stock stand. Still a bit too orange no matter what editing I do!
Any Suggestions? I have to admit I don't know my way around the camera. I usually shoot without flash and hope for the best.
For my second pair:
Also with Scorched Earth beads along with Vintaj components.
