J. Crew-inspired Pearl and Ribbon Necklace

February 23, 2010

OK, so I made a new necklace and want to post a photo of it.  Only thing is, my camera (which came back from the approved service center, by the way) has become a pure living hell for me ~~ can anyone tell me, in 500 words or less, how to take a good close-up photo for the internet?  Just tell me what f-stop, what aperture, what lens.  Is that too much to ask???????  The manual is very disjointed.  I've looked online but find only a mish-mash of info re: digital photography.  Can anybody help me????????  Share your secrets and I'll be indebted to you FOREVER!

Just so you believe me, I'm going to post the necklace ~ bad photo and all.  You be the judge.

   Sorry, but I just don't think that that's the best shot I can get of this.  I mean it's Okaaayy, but it took me like, 25 shots to get this one.  Any one who can save my sorry a** PLEASE feel free to leave a comment! 

I found a great tutorial for the necklace, by the way, at  a site I've recently started following.  It's called http://www.rufflesandstuff.com/.  Check it out!

It's been a long day, and I'm DONE with the blogosphere for tonight.  Take pity on the technologically challenged jewelry-maker-blogger and giver her some advice for taking good photos for her blog :)

I'm no photo genius. I'm still learning. But, first what kind of camera do you have? That's important before I can give you any advice.
