  • Jewellery in the snow :)

    I have a batch of jewellery pieces finally finished, so decided to use the snow we had here in the Midlands to give it a nice background - sadly, not sure my photography skills are up to much, but at least they didn't come out too fuzzy!

    What a good idea. They certainly make good photos. Love the earrings. shame I have no holes left. My own fault.
    God helps them that help themselves.

      Nice pieces!

      You might want to see if your camera has a white balance setting - then you could use that to correct the background, bringing the snow back to white.

      I like the feel of the photos - its like the pieces have just dropped off in the snow, those precious few moments before they get covered up with fresh snow.

        Thanks for the tip, Ejralph, I'll check. It was getting on a bit though, so the light was fading as I took these.

        Critchley, I too have no small holes left, the right closed up years ago and the left is now 12mm big!

          That's a nice idea! Shame it wasn't brilliantly sunny so you could get some sparkles. Try and if you turn up the brightness and contrast you can get the brilliance out a bit more

              I also managed to take some photos of a couple of them without the snow;

                  I have a nice sharp needle and we could use the snow to numb your ear lobe!

                    Ah, don't - I remember my older sister punching her lobes with a needle held in a candle flame, as our mother wouldn't allow us to get extra holes pierced (we already had the regular earring holes from a somewhat young age) - by golly, I'd never seen so much blood before!
