If there is one thing I have struggled with, it's been photographing my jewelry. I have read articles, watched YouTube tutorials, and have even taken a few classes, but still, the skills to show off my pieces seem to elude me.
The metal and the stones are very reflective and if you don't photograph the pieces properly, you can see reflections of things on the pieces (I once had my red shirt reflected on every piece of jewelry I photographed. Definitely not a good look).
I still plan to eventually master this skill (now it's a challenge), but I am grateful for the true professionals at Cloth & Stone Photography in Venice, California. They recently photographed my pieces for this website and the pieces for my fine jewelry collection, Brenda Burdette Fine Jewelry, and what a beautiful job they did!
