LOL see... what do I know HAHAHA.

All I know is... it is SO frustrating to take jewelry pics ... remember my post after I first started my etsy shop? the pictures were killing me.

but I just kept working at it and trying new things. the MOST important for selling on etsy is DETAIL. it doesn't have to be fancy but you HAVE to get your pictures as clear as you can so they can see the details... fancy helps but not if your pictures don't show the little things. not saying that they don't... just saying that is what people on etsy are looking for.

Also... photoshop is your friend. sharpen them up in there and play around with them... not so much that you are changing the whole look of your piece but just so that you are enhancing it.

When it comes to shooting jewelry....much more than I do.

I can only toss out ideas as I see them and they may not work. Diffused light is a pretty safe way to do things - and in most cases, the best way for shooting reflective surfaces, but I just love the colour spilling through to the background. A harsher light might not work out, but it's worth some time investigating
