Last Sunday I had my first model shoot for my jewelry. To make my model and and her friend comfortable I created an atmosphere of a garden party. I used my purple velvet table cloth for craft shows and set out bowls of snacks and had juices and teas. I wanted it to be as cozy as possible.
To tell you the truth I was very nervous! I have no clue what I am doing. So, before Anya and her friend Becky arrived I went through fashion magazines looking for poses that would work well for jewelry. I tore the pages out and had them on the table next to all the jewelry I wanted to photograph.It was a beautiful fall day with warm sunshine while I was setting up for the shoot. About 20 minutes before the ladies arrival the sky became gloomy and threaten rain. Overcast is great for photography but I felt rushed out of fear of rain.
When I edited the photos I created a soft blur around Anya's face. My thought process is that I want the jewelry to pop more the model. Who knows, it is all trial and error!
I learned so much that day and have so much more to learn. It was great fun and I am so glad Anya agreed to do it. It didn't feel like work at all and I had so much fun with her and Becky. Next time I am going to get Becky to do some posing too!
