Uh Oh . . . I Need Help!
I decided I needed some new photo backgrounds for my Etsy shops. The paper backgrounds I have for the bead shop weren't working well with some of the bead colors. I was getting tired of the greenish cast to the slate I've been using in the jewelry store (especially since a lot of the jewelry is green lately).
So ... I bought a nice brownish slate tile and a new batch of neutral scrapbook paper colors. All was well and good in the photo shoot this morning. That is, until I decided to try the jewelry on the scrapbook paper. The jewelry seems to really pop on that paper. But maybe that's just because I'm so used to the slate?!
I really do like to be consistent with backgrounds within each shop. I really don't want to re-shoot all the 100+ items in the jewelry shop (but some really need new pics). I really like the earthy look of the slate for the jewelry. More Etsy sellers use a paper background than use a slate one. I really use that word a lot!
All that being said, which of these photos do you like better for my Etsy jewelry store?
Thanks for your help.
