A good day

After taking the beach walk yesterday and picking up a bag o’ props, today was a perfect sunny day to take more jewelry photos and put some of those props to work. With good light and some pieces lined up to photograph for my Etsy shop, I felt I was making some headway with the prop/photo learning curve. I also had a pretty good time, with the side benefit of being around all day to tend ¬†fermenting dough for 2 more loaves of bread.

This might be one of my favorites so far. The circles and lines of the earrings are subtly echoed in the piece of driftwood behind them.

My good day set me up to post more work on Etsy tomorrow. I can also eat some toast while I write up those descriptions.

I promise I’ll stop forever posting bread photos. But I am still amazed that the recipe for Country Bread, from the Tartine Bread cookbook, has helped me produce beautiful loaves of bread every single time. I always wanted to know how to make bread that looked and tasted like this. Their technique is fool proof!

I wonder how bread would look as a prop for a jewelry photo………..

    Wow! Beautiful earrings, photos, and bread! The props really add to the beauty of the jewelry without taking the focus away from them. Nice work! These cold wintry days seem to inspire baking! Angie just made her first batch of English muffins today! Delicious! Now, looking at your bread, we may just have to go on a search for the Tartine Bread Book! Mmmmmmm!

      If you guys like to make bread, you will really like this book.
      Thanks for the photo feedback. I have prop envy when I look at photos by other people.
      One thing I don’t have is Canada Mittaine Rouge envy! Thank you so much! What a fun gift. And the brochure is priceless! When we wear our Canada Red Mittens, no one knows we are flipping them off, eh? Until we say, “Sorry.” You guys are the best. With this daily blogging challenge, don’t be surprised to see your fabulous mittens featured soon…
