I'm experimenting with my photography and wanted to see what you thought about the direction I'm heading. I find I love to read blogs that have really gorgeous photography in addition to the jewelry. I was just playing with the backgrounds and lighting. These were photographed on my couch with natural light filtering in through the background. I have one of the focals in the foreground of each.
This photo was playing with props, backgrounds, and flash. I don't care for the flash, but I like the props and background. The background is a painting I haven't hung up yet...it might be a little too bold for a regular background, but I like the idea of it. I also like the props instead of bust. I will probably use a bust to give proportion and show how the jewelry lays, but for beauty shots, I like this. Thoughts? Suggestions? Feedback?
