My Quest For The Perfect Photo

I am fairly new at taking photos and creating editing them to post on interent but I’m quickly learning it is one of the most important skills that needs to be developed to effectively sell on the internet.  There is alway the professional phtographer, but that’s a luxury I can’t afford.  I am usually doing good to find cash for jewelry supplies.  I came across an article in one of the Etsy forums called “Make Your Pictures Pop“.  The article talks about adding dynamic range to your photos.  Yeah, I had never heard of dynamic range until I stumbled across this article either.  Dynamic range is the range of tones, from lightest to darkest in a photo.  I tried the tips in the article and OMG! what a difference.Here is a piece I just listed on Artfire the over the weekend.  I took the photos outside on a sunny day and used a piece of stone as the background.  On the left is the original photo and on the right is the edited photo. I used the instructions shown in the article.  Photoshop was used to add dynamic range.  You be the judge.

  I also found this article on photoshop editing.  I thought I would share.  I haven’t tried any of the tips, but I plan to.  

I will continue my quest for the perfect photo.  Until next time.
