Welcome to Studio Saturday!
Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
This weeks winner is Erin of Tesori Trovati!
You have won a fun "Off to see the Wizard" necklace from Tari Sasser of Claybuttons!
Send Tari an e-mail with your address and she will get it right out to you.
This week we visit the studio of Lorelei Eurto, Jewelry designer.
This week, I have gone outside of my studio and down to my Dining room to show you how I take my photographs of my finished jewelry pieces. Photography is a vital step in showing off your art beads. I utilize a large North facing picture window in my dining room, along with a small wooden bench, and some kooky props. Watch this little video below, I'll show you what I mean.
I took a photograph of the bracelet in full sun. This is something I try to avoid, as I don't think it really shows off the piece of jewelry very well. There are shadows, and overexposure of light can really affect the true colors of the beads.
Below you'll see the photographs I took while I was shooting the video! 5 different shots to get a variety of different angles, plus a photo to show scale of the piece when it's worn.
To enter to win THIS BRACELET, yea! this exact one!
Please answer the following question in the comments section of this post.
What photography tips do you have? Do you find
that a certain prop works better or a certain setting on your camera is key
to your jewelry shots?
Any questions about
my process can also be posted here!
A random winner will be picked next Saturday, here at Studio Saturdays on ABS!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
