Sparkle. Glitter. Shine. Specifically, things have been getting all rhinestone-y up in Little White Chapel. I added a few new things to the lineup, but I also went through and redid some of the photography on one of the freakishly sunny days we had:
|Cluster hair pins, $25.|
|Drop earrings, $35.|
|Filigree drop necklace, $35.|
Oooooh, twinkles! For the sake of comparison (don't laugh too hard!), here's a picture of the very first item I sold in the shop. I took it sitting at the dining room table, using artificial light, and I didn't know what the macro setting was:
It's like night and day, almost literally because that old one is so dark (and I probably DID take it at night). This just goes to show you that even if you start out being really bad at pictures like I was, you'll get better.
I still use the same point-and-shoot digital camera that I had back then, so all of these changes are based on props, lighting, and figuring out how to edit. Should I post a tutorial? I could call it Photo Editing For Impatient People, because that's how I roll.
So let me know if anybody would be interested in that. What's new in your shop? Or on your blog? Anybody else working with some sparkle lately?
