Sunshine is an Amateur Jewelry Photographer's Friend

More new photos! I hated the original photos of these two pairs of earrings, but its been rainy and gloomy for so long here in Portland I had to take photos without sunlight. Here you see the outcome of the "gloom photos", enhanced as much as possible to bring them from the darkness:

And today the sun is out, and even though I only have north-facing windows, shaded by a deep balcony and some trees, they turned out soooo much better, with little or no graphics fiddling at all!

Beautiful earings- I love the texture! And you're right, that second set REALLY sparkles. Look at all the edges catching the sunlight!

I've been playing with using sunlight instead of photo tent and lights, too, and today I played the game of "race across the room when the sun went behind the clouds" -- I haven't figured out the perfect mix yet, but looks like you have!

Nothing beats natural light. I always seem to have something ready to photo on rainy days.
