Tammy over at Tammy’s Times posted about making her own lightbox, so I had to try it. I haven’t been that satisfied with my own jewelry photographs, so since I had all the stuff to make a lightbox, I figured there was nothing to lose.

This is one of the photographs that I took a year ago. It’s not horrible, but it’s so dark that I don’t care for it.

The detail and focus was fine but I was having some issues with lighting.

Somehow I ended up at a lightbox-making tutorial that also included instructions for editing the photo in Adobe Photoshop. I wasn’t that interested in changing or editing how the bracelet looked, per se. I just wanted it to look as good as I possibly could. I opened up my photoediting program…..Adobe Photoshop Elements…….to see if I could follow the tutorial. Unfortunately, since Elements is kind of a “lite” version of Photoshop, it doesn’t have all the features that the tutorial mentioned. I decided to just play around with it and see what would happen.

This is the exact same photo. All I did was adjust the lighting and color a little bit. I’m much happier with this one.

Then I took one of my photos that I had taken in the lightbox. This one was easier to edit because the photo started out a lot better.

Eventually I hope to replace all the photos in the entire store with better and more edited ones. That will take a while, since I have several hundred photos in the store, but that’s ok. At least I know the best way to photograph my new designs when I put them in the store the first time.

Here is the final edited picture. It’s the one I used for the store picture.

The bracelet is called I Will Not Forget. It’s made in honor of grieving mothers, because October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

Spread the love
