Wisteria: new home, new photographic backgrounds to explor.


So with the new house my old standard "go to's" for photographing my jewellery in a setting  have changed.
That’s never a bad thing. New means new exploration and now I get to look at what could work, what I’ve done in the past and what would work in my jewellery.

These moss covered rocks were my first attempt.

I like them but as always it’s a fine line with the colouring of the jewellery and the background, as well as the business of the background. Organic forms on organic filled background can sometimes be to much to look at and focus in on as the viewer and that’s why I always photograph my work on a white background.

Let me know what you think!

The first winter snow....... Flower

Still don't know the name of this plant but it's simply stunning in full bloom. With no snow in Brisbane it's my substitute for winter snow.

Wisteria Hysteria

Finally I’ve got a chance to sit down and edit some photo's and at the top of the list was my Wisteria ring. If ever there was a "shy wall flower" in the form of a ring it would be this one, 3 photo shoots later and I’m now happy with the images.

 I started making this Wisteria ring probable late last year and only finished it about a month ago. It just kept asking to be put on the shelf, small features needed more time to be thought about and tested. I always need to be 100% happy my work or it effects everything else I do and sometimes that’s just how my creativity works……. Slowly.
