Staging Photos - Mix it Up!
Constantly trying to upgrade my photos, I am challenged as an amateur photographer! I have tried so many phases of backgrounds and staging for the jewelry product. With my point-and-shoot camera, I can only do so much, but believe that my photos have increased in value over the years.
Lately, I have gravitated to plain white backgrounds for my primary photos. You can see this at the GalleriaLinda Jewelry iCraft.ca shop.
Recently though, I started thinking of creative staging of some jewelry items that found me rooting through cupboards and boxes of old treasures. I found my original doll furniture and thought - why not?!
Here are a couple of photos taken of jewelry on my doll furniture. I like the concept but am not quite there yet and I will be trying more shots and staging with this concept.
I found some old sterling silver tableware that were completely oxidized. I love the oxidized color and found it to be a fabulous contrast to the jewelry.
Take a look around your house for your treasures to try and set aside a fun day of staging!
