Product photography can be tricky!

I have been struggling since last ten days – first I haven’t found any models for the handicraft items I created earlier last week. I had created brooches and hair-pins for young girls and couldn’t find anybody to model for that. The other issue is with the shiny and sparkly material that I used on the brooches and hairpins that I created. This material is very hard to photograph. It doesn’t come out well in the pictures. What is even more frustrating is that when I use images of kids and then add these brooches/hairpins on them the final image doesn’t come out well either. No matter how much of photoshopping I do on these images, they don’t seem right. The images of brooches/hairpins look good only when they are worn by a real person. Earlier I have used dolls to display the brooches/hairpins but the doll head is too small in comparison to the the hairpins and it makes the image look fake and odd.

Well what can I do? So today I decided to continue my work and blog without the baby model. However I did find a beautiful pet model “Snoop”. He looks really handsome in this snazzy Merry Christmas bandanna. Thanks to Linda and Sarah for letting Snoop model.  In Snoop’s scarf I used plain fabric color instead of sparkly stuff and as you can see it has come out much better. I am going to continue to make the same stuff (scarves/brooches/hairpins) in other materials that is not so shiny and sparkly and see if I can avoid this problem.

I have few more things cooking related to the fun jewelry concept. I will put them on the blog as soon as I have some ready.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

More fun craft ideas!

Last week I had a great time creating fun jewelry/accessories like holiday forehead bands, jingle bells bracelet and Christmas stockings with custom names on them.



I have been thinking that may be I can take this idea a step further and can make something similar for babies and pets so that they can also say and share the spirit of Christmas. With that in mind I have started to work on hair clips for babies and scarves for pets. How does that sound? Here is the picture of all my tools of the trade that I am using. Pretty simple, right? Well tomorrow I will post a  picture of the first finished item. I hope it comes out good!
