No one is going to buy some earrings that they can't see clearly, or that are blurred or under exposed. These photos are my only chance to show my customers the colour, texture, and beauty of the item. And luckily my friend Liz had signed up to Groupon and found a brilliant cheap deal; so that is how I spent my Saturday morning.
I had already figured out how to change the white balance, and I know a teeny bit about depth of field. But this course was brilliant. Yes, of course I've read the manuals, but it makes such a difference to have someone to explain it all, show examples, and importantly explain how the different aspects work together.
I had a few eureka moments in there. Hopefully I will remember some of it, and maybe it will start showing through in my photos, but we'll have to wait and see (and I'll let you be the judge of that)! And even if my shop pictures aren't any better - maybe it'll take me less time (and 50 less pictures) to get to those particular snaps!
So, what part of photography do you just not get?
