The hardest thing is to sell jewelry on line. How many times in my past – when I only start making jewelry I received feedback – like this “Your jewelry much better in person then on the photos”
Now I’m trying twice more to make my pictures pop to my customer’s eyes.
Some tips from me!
1. Make a composition with some extra items on background. They shouldn’t be too big neither too small. (The extra items are a nice background in the composition and not like wow what is she selling? )
2. Contrast is also good tip – don’t use blue background for some blue jewelry.
3. Try to find the angle that is not usual .. you must make the photography with the thought like the necklace or earrings or .. must flouting to the customers wish list
4. If you don’t know how Photoshop works – try to use some simple programs (I use Picasa and Paint.net) Always make some fixing before listing your items sometime even a little retouch will be great for your creation.
Here is some photos from my favorite shops - they will give you some ideas how to make your jewelry stand up.
