******** A little note about the song above. I was watching an episode of Ray Donovan on Showtime. They played this hit. I had forgotten about this golden oldie. Big ups to Ray Donovan.********
New year, new energy, new me(hopefully). I decided to buy some equipment to take better pictures of my inventory. I finally broke down. Since I had some money on the books at Amazon, I was able to purchase a light tent, necklace display and a tripod. I made a light box from cardboard( I am all about being frugal), but my work space is small and I needed something that I could collapse and put away. I would rather make a product than buy, but I needed to make my jewelry POP, I needed (wanted, you pick) these items. I just hope my frugal crowd understands.
I had never brought from Amazon before and I found the experience to be well..... alright.
I don't really know what I expected. More fanfare, light flashing, angels weeping.
Oh well, let me show you what I got.
Here is my light tent. A little smaller than I would like only 12 inches, but it will do. I have not tired it yet. I am going to ask a friend of my to build me a stand to hold my clamp lights that will surround the tent. This way I can get the crisp, clean white background for my jewelry.
My Tripod came in the mail next.
Eventually, I will purchase one that stands a little taller.
I plan to photograph other items.
And last but not least, my necklace display.
Ebony and Ivory.
I can't wait to get started.
