This weeks time sucker has been wrapped up in trying to take photos of the 3010 things in the studio waiting for their close up. In addition to that I've been teaching my daughter how to take pics for Etsy and assist while I take some.
In a nut shell it took two days to take 250 pictures, then another day until 1 am to re-sample them and catalogue them for the shop. I still need descriptions, measurements, pricing...it never seems to end.
But I'm getting ahead of myself...lets start at the beginning. Back here: http://susanscharmingtrinkets.blogspot.com/2011/10/whats-up-this-week.html
I started to tell you about my photo box and my attempts at taking pics of my jewelry. That photo box is one of the best things I've ever built and it cost the price of a recycled box, about 1/2 yard of white cotton fabric (maybe $2.50), and a roll of white duct tape ($5.00) which I didn't use up.
So here's the whole thing as it looks now in my new studio area:
|It's on wheels!|
You can see underneath the box there is a roll of paper, a box of some kind...etc. Props...today we're were working on shots of vintage jewelry hence the vintage back drop pieces.

Next time I will show you my mixed media supply shop pictures and the magic of a photo program!
Have an artful day!
