I found myself very frustrated yesterday at my camera! I don't know how to use the stupid thing! I needed to take better pictures of my jewelry so they can be added to a catalog I am creating for home shows, the web and such!
Finally, after some screaming, fuming and yes some tears I found a site on google that explained exactly what was wrong with what I was doing! Oh! There is "White Balance" on my camera?!! What a miracle!!!!
Excited I ran outside, set up my area and began manipulating my camera and snapping photos!

They turned out Perfect! Well, at least close to it! What do you think?


  1. Your jewelry is beautiful!!! And your photos are lookin' great too :)
    Photographing my work is the hardest part of selling online! My photos are an ever-constant work in progress!

  2. I have struggled with photos too. I spent Saturday helping a friend set up her etsy shop and take photos. Thank you for the tip.
    Your work is gorgeous.

  3. turned out great!

    following you from etsy!

  4. Your jewelry is just beautiful! I know exactly what you mean about the photos. My husband bought me a new camera for Christmas and I was so upset to see that everyone in my Holiday photos had bright white faces! After doing some research I discovered that I can adjust my exposure. What a difference!
