    overcast winter is when did a fair few of those >.< I refuse to wish for overcast weekends even if it will help my photography. But I'll watch out for one

    Thanks!

    Hi Kathryn,
    Just had a look at you shop. Lovely set-up.
    I find successful photography is a nightmare......What I want to do is make (and sell) jewellery,......selling seems to mean I have to be the master of so many things I hadn't anticipated and know so little about!! Lol!!

    I had a play around and my only (possibly) useful suggestion is that once I've added an item to the basket, there is a 'continue shopping' button,....so if I have purchased a pendant, you can easily continue shopping and add the matching earrings!!

    Great work....must get around to sorting mine, I have had it in private mode for a while!!

    Ooo thanks I'll see if I can add a continue shopping button.
    I hope to see yours up and running soon too.
    I'm now panicking about expenses for a self assessment >.<

    Nicely done! It's so hard getting it right!

    I usually use the correct exposure according to the light meter, but then increase exposure in post production. I also sometimes cool down the colour tone if I'm photographing silver only items. It really depends on the background.

    In-camera or separate meter?

    separate. There is one in camera as well, but the other half would chide me if I didn't use the proper one.

    I thought that might be the case!

    Looks great Kathryn. My only suggestion would be to use a white background. It just makes the jewelry come alive. i think almost all sites that sell jewelry use a white background. Other than that, you are way ahead of me sister

    Thanks Eric, although I only seem to get things done in fits and spurts what with the full time job and political activism and small amounts of social life I squeeze around those so I've not added anything for ages. I have a pile I'm building for hallmarking and then photos so who knows maybe I'll move to the next step this year and actually promote it >.<
