And here is another photo of it:
Pretty nice photos? That brings me to the main point of this post. After I finished the nautical pendant and photographed it, the final photographs just didn't do it any justice. Matter of fact, my photo made it look just terrible. I had already taken the pendant to Cadeaux and Caches to sell, so it wasn't available to me to re-photograph. Luckily, I had a new resource. An online clay pal and teammate from Etsy, Robin of "Adorned by Robin" came to the rescue! She is an award winning and published jewelry artist herself. Therefore, she quite understands the tribulations of non-professional photographers who try to capture professional looking images. Robin has started a new photo retouching service specifically for artists called, "An Even Better Image". She does great work with photographs and also understands the type of photos required for juried events and publications, having experience in this herself. She offers basic editing services as well as in-depth corrections. Please visit her site to see some examples of her work and how the whole process works if you would like to enlist her help.
Now, would you like to see wht my original photo looked like?
Have a great day!
