Here's the thing. I live near the ocean and when it's hot inland, it's gloomy or foggy here. I love this, I live here for the cool temperatures of the sea and those sweet, salty ocean breezes. However, It is not so good for the photography of jewelry for ebay. I need bright sun for that. I found this really awesome group on etsy called "Dark Beauty". Some of those members do this black on black photography that I am totally inspired by. They use black backgrounds, diffused lighting and shadows. I think that it will solve my sun related lighting problem. Here is my first try with it. Not as good as theirs but I will get better.
