Picture Perfect – Photographing Jewelry
by Annie Laughton.
When selling my pieces online, the photos are the most important thing to grab the buyer’s attention.
After investing in a photocube and good camera, I began to improve my photos exponentially.
The addition of the rock is for two reasons – one it is something to lean the pendants on rather than photographing them flat, and two – it gives some sort of size reference.
Most of my pictures have this same rock in them and so a large pendant overshadows the rock and a small one is lower than the top.
This gives my customers a handy reference point.
This one is a reasonably large fossil coral stone wrapped in copper.
Love how the simplicity does not overshadow the beautiful patterns in the rock.
