Potential photographs for my website:

Although I liked the idea of this photograph with the two makeup compacts facing each other I figured that when I took the photo that I woukld need to take it in a room with nothing else in as the shine on the cases reflects the room around them ( which does not look very professional).

In this photograph I had a similar problem to the previous one as the compact case shows reflections that makes it appear unproffessional, therfore I will not be using this photograph in my website.

I took this photograph by chance and then I edited the contrast and lighting differences on when I uploaded it onto my computer. i really like the misted effect that I have managed to achieve, however, although I like the image I don't think it will fit anywhere onto my website.

These three images are from the 'Spring Vintage' jewellery shoot that I did. They are just some of the examples of when I tested different settings on the my camera. For these particular images i have used the sketching setting on the camera, which creates the appearance, not of a photograph, but of the image being sketched. Eventhough I do like this technique I feel that these images will; not be suitable for the purpose that i am using them for; because they are for a jewellery shoot on my website, the sketching effect sort of defeats the object of the shoot as the purpose is to try and showcase the jewellery or selling it.

For these three images I have used the 'magic' setting on the camera, which accentuates colours making all colours appear quite exuberant and vivid. I also took these photographs using a white curtain as a backdrop, which I think makes the phots look a lot more proffessional. I will definitely consider using atleast one of these three images on my website.

On this photo I have used the pinhole setting on my camera which has created an illuminating effect on the birdcage which I think looks very effective. The only trouble with this image is that there is a fold in the curtain which is very close to the birdcage, therefore even if I crop the image the side of the birdcage may appear a little distorted and odd with barely any backdrop.

This is also another example of when I used the pinhole setting on the camera I like the idea that this shot is a close up, so the jewellery is fully showcased, however, I don't think it's the best image that I have took, therefore I don't think i will be using it on my site.

These two images are using the 'fisheye' setting on my camera. I think that this effect has definitely created an unusual perception of the jewellery, however, I think for the purpose that Iam using the images for it could appear a little sloppy and too amature looking.

In this image I was experimenting with different backdrops for the shoot. Here I have used a white currtain and a mirror to reflect the birdcage. I think that the yellow wall sort of spoils the image though, as the colour dettracts from the jewellery.

I really dislike this image and I definitely will not use it, as I think the use of lighting , the backdrop and the distance that the photo is taken from appears really tacky and messy.

I more-or-less think the same about this image as the one above and I will not be using it for the same reasons.

This image was for my 'Sea of Blue' jewellery shoot, however, I have decided against using it as I feel it looks messy and to like I have took the photographs, which I have.

I have actually took this photo using the fisheye setting on the camera, then I have changed the contrast and brightness on my computer at home. I think that the effect of this image looks quite proffessional and I will therefore be using it on my website.

I also really like this image which I have used the 'magic' setting on the camera, which has accentuated the colours displayed. I then edited the contrast and brightness using my computer and as with all the images that I toom I have cropped the image accordingly.

As the theme of this shoot was 'Sea's of Blue' I have tried to play up to this theme in this photograph by arranging the jewellery to look like a boat on the sea. Although I think the principle of the idea was effective, i do not think that the end result i8s very proffessional, therefore I will not use this image. I do howver, think that this idea would work very well if it was on a professional shoot and an unlimited supply of jewellery and equipment could be provided.

This is another shot for the 'Sea's of Blue' shoot that I think has worked very well, for this image I have used the pinhole setting on my camera which has really worked well illuminating and highlighting the jewellery. I also think that it helps that I have used some bedding as a plain white background, as opposed to the light blue tissue paper that I used for the boat photographs.

I think that this image is one of the more effective photos of this type where I have placed lots jewellery onto the tissue paper, but I still don't like the image and will not use it.

These three following images are some of the most successful images that i took and edited for my 'Spring Vintage' photo shoot and I think that I am definitely going to use these images on my website as I feel that they fit the purpose and display the jewellery in a clear, precise way.
