I just realized that I am taking about 100 photographs a week. At least. Sometimes more like 200.
The beads, waiting for their closeup:
I've been steadily working on my photography skills. I've started using the manual settings on my camera, and fiddling with white balance and F stops and such. Someday I hope to get some new backgrounds, but for now the white cloth helps make leveling a snap using Photoshop's leveling feature.
Jewelry is even trickier. There are high spots and low spots, and silver is so easy to overexpose.
I have been trying to make my photos more visually engaging and increase the "texture" and focus in more strongly on the main elements. It's a challenge, definitely.
Photography is such a learning experience. I still have such a long way to go.
