Thanks for sharing. I’ve been struggling with my product photography. I was wondering if I should continue shooting the same way or change my backgrounds. So I will try and think of other ways to shoot my jewelry. Thanks!

Hey Jessica! Your product shots are gorgeous, but it never hurts to get a little variety in there and experiment to see what works best with your photographs for capturing customer’s attention, driving more sales, getting more press mention, etc. The key is maintaining consistency with your styling while having a variety of shots/ backgrounds, etc. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Looks great share. However, I also want to share some even budget home studio where everyone can seek out at the local store , besides the white background seamless or waterproof material for studio , actually, glass also one of great material for product photography, may be just find anywhere from home that you have a flat glass table or so on , that you can do a balance composition via reflection of the glass too ! Still, everything is brilliant for most of the stuff here. =)
