if I were a bead...
...would I be this difficult?
That is the question you have to ask yourself when brainstorming for creative jewelry photo's. They really aren't very cooperative subjects,
they roll around
shine too much
choose picky backgrounds
have many profiles
don't follow directions
and need help doing everything.
I have never moved so much, up and down, up and down, bending, reaching, now hold it...(flash) geez, is my flash on again!? And what do you do when you need something to move just that (.) much? You have to use what feel like extremely fat fingers, that ever so gently, try to reach out and oooops...the camera gets bumped, you find yourself pleading outloud with inanimate objects and your neighbor is tempted to peek through the fence, only to see you on your knees and begging the wind not to blow! Okay, so I need to have an effective talk with my neurotic, type A, first born personality...
taking its picture...blah! my brain hurts
