Taking photographs of jewelry is not easy. In this case I have made numerous attemps to capture these earrings in a way that they will look just as they are – translucent, freeform, somewhat bulky and natural. When I tried to photograph them on a white backgraound – they simply would not stay put! – they turned around, would not stay in one place, gave me a bad time!
Finally, I decided to “put them in their place” so to speak, took a beautiful peach and stuck them there to see if this would bring them back to order! I succeeded! ! I think….
This morning I looked at the photgraph with the peaches and thought to myself – “this is not too bad, but I would prefer a more neutral backgraound”. I placed a wine glass on the table and began a new series of photographs. I do not know whether they are perfect, but at least customers can view most/all angles of the earrings:
The earrings shown here on the model can give you an idea of the proportions and look of the earrings. They were photographed with a similar pair, with the same sizes, settings etc.
Finally – Would you like to know what has become of the peach after I finished taking photos? - I ate it of course!!
