I have a really good DSLR camera that I use to take photos of jewelry, but it's a pain in the butt to try to take "selfie" photos because I can't see myself in the view finder.
You know me, I do a ton of research, but in this case, I decided to ask the advice of experts. I called National Camera Exchange in Minneapolis. Based on their advice, I chose the Olympus OM-D Mark II.
Below are a few photos I've been working on: (This one is obviously right before my tan left. I'm totally back to pastey except for my perpetual rosy cheeks.)
p.s. Click any photo to see the piece on my website.
I wanted to be able to show you the size of jewelry on a real person. The most convenient person is ME! Yikes. I had to get over myself and just take photos of me, flaws and all.
Here I'm going for a stylized shot so you think I'm mysterious.
I'm working at showing different ways of wearing (also called "styling") the jewelry.
My two favorite necklace cords are a contemporary black rubber cord and my adjustable sterling silver snake chain. The black cord makes the pieces feel more contemporary and casual. You don't have to be "dressed up" to wear the piece.
The adjustable sterling silver snake chain lets you wear the pendant wherever you want depening on your outfit. Adding a scarf? Set the chain length longer like in this photo.
Here's to selfies!!
