Is photography a craft....?

Posted on


I haven't got any makes to show you this week - Creative juices seem to have dried up :(

I do, however, have some news.   I have agreed to do some website and product photography work for Rococo Art and Gifts.  Rococo sells my jewellery in a beautiful little shop at Liberty Wharf, St Helier.  Chantal, the owner, is passionate about Jersey and all it's Crafters and Artists and is a member of 'Genuine Jersey'.  You can see Rococo's current website here.  The site I am working on won't be live for a while yet.  Here are a couple of early product shots....

I am thinking that the background is a little too 'blue'.  I might have a play and tone it down a tad.  I have 12 mugs in all to photograph which, with the website, will keep me busy for a while.  Hopefully I will get creative again soon too!!

My friend loved her necklace and is really pleased to have it back in one was a favourite of hers and she has missed wearing it.  So happy days all round :)

I'm now off to get some inspiration from Handmade Monday!!  I'll see you next week!!  (hopefully with oodles of jewellery to show you!!)

Bye for now....

  1. Oh isn't it annoying when your crafty mojo disappears. I agree with everyone else I think the blue and white mugs would show up better on a different background. Hope your back on track soon. Ali x

  2. The top photo works well but I agree that with the others the blue appears a bit strong. Not an expert in photography I can offer no help I am afraid. Sorry.

  3. I love the photos, the top one the blue is perfect but maybe a tad lighter as the other mugs are paler. Well done on getting this commission, you work so hard and deserve it. C x

  4. I like the blue backgrounds, the photos have a nice 'soft' quality about them which i know is hard to achieve from photographing my own mugs! x

  5. I just point and snap hoping the photo comes out! So I admire those who can take really lovely photos which are works of art in themselves.

  6. Photography definitely is a craft, which I think you have mastered.

    Well done Sarah, a great extension to your work. Yes, I think photography is a craft - you are creating something, making things look different, well displayed and a pleasure to look at. Hope you have a good week.
