Thanks, SKUTRGAL. I only recently acquired a digital camera. Have not used it yet.

I usually scan an object, placing a box over it for a white background or laying a colored scarf over it. It is not possible to close the cover of the scanner with a 3-d object on it.

I have a box (a Christmas box, actually), that is lined in green velvet. I either lay items in it & take pictures from above or pin items in it & prop it up & photograph.

I have a digital camera with a pretty good macro feature. I just keep shooting until I get the shot I want.

I'm not a fan of using a model. I then tend to focus on the person, not the project. Just a peeve of mine. Of course, it does help to see how earrings & a necklace will look together, or how long a pair of earrings will look on a person. But again, I tend to see the person, not the project.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, ... , body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Do you use a scanner? A digital camera? An old-fashioned camera and wait until your pics are developed?

Do you lay projects flat, use a model, hang them from an inanimate object?

Do you have anything else to share about making images of beading projects?
