My name is Jim Juris and my specialty is photographing jewelry and small craft items. I do this without buying and using a lot of expensive photography equipment. Of course, this is assuming that you already have purchased a digital camera and a good tripod.
I know how frustrating jewelry photography can be. Most people who make and sell jewelry online feel that photographing their jewelry is the part of their business that they dislike the most.
Jewelry photography is like anything else, the more time and effort that you put into photographing jewelry the better you will become and the easier it will be. This is true not only for jewelry photography but for any craft or hobby.
Fast! You won't need to spend days, weeks, months, or a year trying to perfect your photography. You can read my ebook in two hours or less.
Easy! The methods that I teach in my ebook are easy to understand and use.
Low Cost! You won't have to spend hundreds of dollars on additional equipment such as special lighting or a jewelry photography light box to make your photos look good.
Immediate Download! You never have to leave home to purchase my ebook. The immediate download is only available through my Photography By Jim Juris shop on Handmade Artists.
While many artisans create beautiful jewelry and other handmade crafts, they don't know how to take great photographs of their fabulous creations. Their photos look bad so they miss out on sales. With some practice and by using the knowledge that I will provide from my experience, you should be seeing a great improvement in the quality of your jewelry photography very quickly.
"Jim, I really believe in your ebook. I think it is extremely well written and easy to understand. All of my pictures are so much better and I have only been using some of your tips."
Diana Norman, www.DianaNormanDesigns.com
My ebook consists of 60 pages of text. Included in those 60 pages are 34 images.
One of the advantages of buying jewelry in a store is that you can look, feel, and try on the jewelry before you buy it. Your web sites photographs compete with that experience so they need to be terrific. If your jewelry does not look good on your web site then how can you expect someone to purchase it from you?
If you want to be successful at selling jewelry online, you must have quality photographs of your products, otherwise people will just move on to the next jewelry web site. Thousands of artisans are competing with you to sell their jewelry online, either on an auction site, a craft venue, or on their own website. Unlike your local retail shops, online stores can attract potential buyers from anywhere in the world.
You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on additional photography equipment in order to take great jewelry photographs. You can take excellent jewelry pictures with a digital camera that is 2 mega pixels or greater and a small inexpensive tripod.
I use and highly recommend using GIMP to edit my photographs. GIMP is powerful open source software that can do just about everything Photoshop can do. Plus GIMP is FREE from http://www.gimp.org. Check out my photo editing ebook on GIMP.
One of the methods that I teach and use does not require using a tripod. This is actually my favorite method of close up photography. This method will also work for photographing small flat items like coins, stamps, arrowheads, and casino chips. I explain this method completely in my ebook.
Yes, you can spend hundreds and maybe a thousand dollars or more, for quality lighting, a photo light box or tent, and other accessories, but that is not really necessary for jewelry photography, unless you are planning on making a living as a professional photographer. Using inexpensive photography accessories allows you to spend your money on your business and yourself instead.
