Then I decided to try one of the travertine tiles we used for our bathroom, again they looked great while i was taking the snaps, but when I loaded them into the computer and enlarged them, it looked like my pieces were laying on funny coloured skin!
So last night while I was talking to a friend she suggested her bathroom tiles, beautiful grey slate. So her bo headed down this afternoon with 3 slabs of it for me to try. And I am happy to report, success!!! I really enjoy the photography side of selling and feel that I have developed my 'style' if you like. But I have struggled to find the perfect background untill today. I tried contrasting coloured paper to the jewellery, delicately patterned white paper, sheet music, wood and wall paper. I knew what kind of look I was trying to achieve but just hadn't found the right one.
