images 1&2 from aloha gaia, image 3 from free people, image 4 is my attempt at photographing myself!
As a one man band with no budget, one thing I struggle with is photography. I am the photographer and the model and so I contort myself into awkward positions to try and take a photo of myself wearing one of my bracelets or rings. Thanks to smart phones, this job is now a lot easier than it would have been once upon a time!
I would love to have the money to invest in a proper photo shoot, especially as I have seen some really inspirational ways of showcasing jewellery on models with beautiful photography recently. I have never wanted my face in the photos of my jewellery as I was always the kid who could not pose for a photo growing up, I always had my eyes shut or I was pulling a funny face. Some of these images could be the answer, I could model myself and enlist my husband to take some photos. I can even hide my face!
Have you come across any inspiring images showcasing jewellery that you would like to share?
