Learning to Photograph Jewelry

I have beens struggling with photographing my jewelry for posting on Etsy for sometime and due to the fact that I wasn't able to get good photos I have been delaying posting my jewelry.  Today I found a tutorial in one of the blogs that I follow on how to photograph jewelry with a point and shoot.  I decided to experiment with the macro setting on the camera and see what happens.  Well I think that they turned out pretty good - if I do say so myself.  I still need to find a suitable background to photograph my pieces on and play around with the positioning but for the first time I don't hate what I photographed.  Check it out.  These are two pieces that I had on my worktable - one is a finished wrap bracelet and one is a kumihimo piece that is in the works.

I love fall.  I love all the colors, the crisp fall air and the color of the sky in fall - so clear, crisp and blue.  Fall is such a great time to cook those wonderful things that it was way too hot to cook during summer, like apple pie, chicken and noodles and wonderful soups.  I've just begun my fall decorating and each year when I bring out my collection of pumpkins and leaves it make me happy.  I am hoping to take some photos of my fall decorations to post here in a few days.  Hope you are enjoying the transition from summer to fall at your house.
