Berry influenced earrings

Last night, I created two new pairs of earrings inspired by the blueberry and the cranberry.

Check them out below!



They've both been listed in my Etsy shop, Ladyhawke.Designs.

Oriental, keep working on them! They'll turn out. :)

We have a regular ol' Nikon Coolpix digital camera and a tripod. I make sure that the Macro setting is turned on, the flash is turned off and that I use the 3 second timer.

My work table has a little fluorescent light mounted below the shelves. I hang a big sheet of white paper behind the light and lay another sheet on the table surface. When taking pics, I'll depress the button halfway so that the camera can auto-adjust it's settings then I'll depress the button all the way.

Be sure to crop and adjust the levels, color balance & brightness/contrast if need be with photo editing software.

If nothing else, keep shooting those pics. Practice makes perfect. :)
