Good Evening all!
It’s been a little while since my last post, longer than I would like. I’ve been busily photographing my new pieces, and collecting bits of things and ideas for my next wave of tins. Unfortunately, this photo session has taken longer than expected. I have hundreds of photos to sort through and dozens to edit, and I still want to take more (perfectionist?). These pieces have offered new challenges while photographing that I didn’t have with my last set, but fortunately I have the new Florence and the Machine album to help me get through it! It’s absolutely fantastic, and if you get a chance you should look it up.
Anyway, since these pieces have been so difficult to capture, I decided to make a photo light box. It’s come in quite handy and I thought it might be good to share. It was really easy and inexpensive to put together, and can be made with items around the house.
Basically, you just take an old box and line the inside with white paper. I used printer paper. Then, cut a square out on the top and two sides and cover them with white cloth (or in my case) tracing paper. These will allow you to softly light your items from multiple sides. Voila, you’re done and ready to take great photos!
If you didn’t notice, little bird skull necklaces are whats next for the shop!
