Taking Pictures Slump

So after feeling totally uncreative about picture taking and unable to take a picture of anything that was even close to like-able and about to give up cause I will never be able to think of anything ever again...I posted a thread on etsy and got lots of good advice and support where I realized that I was holding on so tightly to have to take a good picture that my knuckles were white. So I was able to relax and just play with it and not feel like I had to produce anything. I was given this perfect rainy day, with the perfect kind of light coming in my window. I thought about how to hang my earrings. I got a piece of copper and drilled some holes in it, then balanced it on two empty toilet paper rolls (technical equipment), and fired away. I was much happier with these pictures and I guess maybe I won't give up after all.

Hi Evelyn,

I totally understand. Sometimes the thought of shooting my jewelry drains me of the desire to make it because I know the shooting process can be so intense. Sometimes it takes me almost an entire day to do my photos--and then I get to the end and figure out there's something I don't like about all of them!

Anh, goes with the territory! ;-p

Your photos look great!!! Hang in there, and know that you're not the only one who feels that way. --Again, your photos really look good, and the entirety of them compliments your jewelry quite nicely.

Cute Litsa!! If I were closer, I could be your photographer, and you could give me deals on your stuff!
