I'm practicing my photography so that I can post better pictures here on the blog. When I submit photos of my jewelry to shows, magazines and competitions they will be professionally photographed. But for the blog I wanted to work on improving my photography for your enjoyment.
Above is a piece I made this past year out of copper, silver and a mirror, with a handmade chain.
Here are my camera settings:
I used the macro setting on my camera and didn't notice much of a difference in ability to take a closer shot. Also my color balance is off, not sure what I did wrong but the background should be pure white.
I'm using a Cannon PowerShot SX230 HS Digital Camera. I know I should get a better camera, it's on the list of things I need.
If you have any comments or suggestions please post a comment. I always welcome feedback.
