gosh, i hate to iron.
but my light tent came with an "eternity insert" (i believe that's what it's called-it's draped from the back of the tent to the floor of the tent to eliminate visible environment corners) that was wrinkly as all get-out.
here's the tent. on the kitchen table. there's nowhere even remotely big enough in my studio to set that thing up. those lights shining on the sides? i had to move 3 large pieces of furniture to unplug them from my kids' rooms. so, it's not the most convenient set up for taking photos of the jewelry, but it's WAY better than waiting till an overcast saturday or sunday, which is what i HAVE been doing! i think the photos came out pretty well, also (they're posted on etsy).
i was very excited about my white eternity insert thinking the white would make such a clean backdrop. to me it seems to be too harsh. i can't seem to balance the light properly. does anyone agree?
so i went back to my old stand-by, a lovely piece of heavy gray silk (i had to iron THAT, too!). the colors are a little washed-out but do we like the gray better?
