Well the sun has gone!!! Horrible, cold, grey and wet weather has taken it’s place!! Winter makes me miserable, especially when I have to take photos of my beadwork!!! but I had to take these pictures… and seeing that they predict (miserable) rain for the next 2-3 days, I figured I would just get on with it… I have to say the photo didn’t come out as bad as I was expecting… it’s a bit (a lot) yellow… a bit dark… a bit grainy… but as I don’t have any indoor photo equipment I had to do with my ceiling lamp for light… and the result is not too terrible… I think…
I was asked to make another of my original Picture Framed pendant (see photo below) – The beadembroidery is almost identical, the stone is different…both are Picture Jasper but the one below looks more like trees reflected in water, the one above more like trees along a long road… I love these Picture Jasper beads, each one has its own marking… each one telling a different story…. I actually like both of them equally, however in the photo below, the colours are more accurate, in the one above, it’s a bit too yellow (due to the ceiling light) and the jasper is a bit washed out… but it’s the best I could do under the circumstances :-)
Well…. all I want to do is get back into bed and hide under my duvet!!… but I have too many things to do… so the duvet will have to wait till tonight! :-) For now… back to beading! :-)
Triz both are lovely - do you have any photo editing software - I originally had an old copy of Photoshop but when I got a new computer I couldn't afford Photoshop again so I bought Elements and I love it just as much or maybe more than Photoshop - I always use it to correct my photos - even those that come out good - they can always use a tewak or two. Just a thought.ReplyDelete
thank you Jean! :-) and LOL believe it or not both photos have been photoshopped :-)ReplyDelete
I love them both, Triz! Picture jasper is one of my favorite jaspers as well. It can be so incredible "expressive." :DReplyDelete
Triz, if you hadn't explained all your troubles photographing these, I would have never known! A fine job overcoming your obstacles, I'd say, and both pendants are totally GORGEOUS!! Thanks for forging ahead through a miserable day because now we get our day brightened :>]]ReplyDelete

but i dont think it is gona be like yours.
Gorgeous pendants Triz...and your photos are great...if you hadn't mentioned your issues I wouldn't have noticed.ReplyDelete
I have the same issues...my photo skills are severely lacking and I wait for sunny weather as much as possible at least then I get a decent shot...some day I'll take a photography course but until then will make due!
PS hope you feel better soon.!!!
Yes, photos of jewelry without lots of natural light is so tough... but yours look good!ReplyDelete
