I just saw a little video tutorial on Etsy.com's Myspace page with Brooke (Gemmafactrix). She was sharing a few of her secrets about photographing jewelry. I had tried using natural light in the past, but just wasn't getting it right. After viewing her tutorial, I was inspired to give it another shot!
I also like using paper with a subtle pattern. This grid is a lot more interesing than plain old white!
Now the only problem with relying on natural light is that Ohio seems so gray and rainy. It's supposed to snow tomorrow! :::wail:::
