Playing with backgrounds...

Once again I am playing with different backgrounds for my photos. It is like a never ending dilemma for me.  I had originally settled for a beautiful neutral gray then switched to a clean black when I started trying out a light box. I am faced with the "weather" thing again and having dark gray skies is not very conducive to taking "natural lighting" photographs. (which was why I originally started using a light box years ago)  It was only because my major knock off shop started using the black background as well that I decided to switch over to the unique wood for my photos.  It made me crazy to see their shop pics look exactly like mine so I HAD to switch! (ugh) I still love the wood background but I have always liked to "clean professional" look of the reflective black background...especially for jewelry. I really am at a standstill...I definitely like the jewelry photographed on the new background but I think I still prefer the wood for all the other pieces. Now I'm stuck with having a shop that doesn't look coherent to me with the mix of wood and black!
Any feedback would greatly e appreciated!
Here are a few pics with the new background and a few with both to compare.

Oh yeah, I'm using natural light to take pics on the black background! LOL!

Glittering and Glamorous Halloween Pieces!

It's that time of the year again when we can all have an excuse to really dress up and have fun I wanted to make sure to share a few of my Sexy Halloween inspired Glamorous pieces!

Black is so challenging to photograph for the novice like me however, the piece is so elegant and billowy in person. I sprinkled olive Swarovski crystals in a playful spray that flows up the feathers. It's difficult to see in the photos but I wanted to share that little detail! 

Olive Widow Fascinator

Large Ravens Kiss

This piece is also wonderful pinned to a dress as a flower brooch as well as attached to a sash.

The Sparkling Ruby

Crimson Lorraine

Beautiful hand dyed a deep dark almost blood red color with a sparkling Swarovski crystal center!

 Pink Widow Fascinator

Have fun everyone!
