I had some free time the other day and I decided to mess around with the camera and taking pics of some of my pieces on different backgrounds etc! I was hoping to find a solution to my current photo setup. As much as I love how the pieces are turning out on the white background it's very tedious to set up all the pages, etc. to reflect light as I don't have a light box and about 95% of the photos I take turn out more grey than white!
I have a really nice dark wooden hall table inside my bedroom door and I love how the pics turned out on this! I think it really shows you what they look like without any extra light being reflected or anything these are 100% natural photos and are taken in one of the slightly darker areas in my room. The only thing I do to my photos is add a watermark. Anyway, enough with the rambling! Here are two pics (the most similar I have) of my Royal Pearl Bracelet showing both the original photo style and the darker background!
You can see that for some reason the white background makes pieces look much more grey in colour than it really is.
My point for this post is to inquire which style of photo you prefer! Personally, I am leaning towards darker as it shows a much more true-to-life colour and there is no set up whatsoever involved for me (laziness~XP). Which do ye prefer? Do you think I should stick with the lighter background or use the dark wooden background?
Hope everyone is having a great week! ♥
