Welcome to my new website. This launch is long overdue, and I am finally making it happen. I took my old website down well over a year ago and put up a "splash" page. I had no idea what that meant until some young "techie" told me. Anyway, I was recently rejected from a curated gallery website where artists sell their pieces. I think it was because of my photography -more on that later. I finally decided that I just need my own website, not a curated online store. So here we are!
Photographing jewelry is one of the hardest things to shoot - it is highly reflective and small. I have all the gear, have taken online classes, have gotten lots of advice from my professional photographer friends. It is just really difficult. However, after years of working on this, I think I have finally achieved the status - "as good as it is going to get without hiring a professional". The backgrounds are different even though each picture is lit identically in a light tent, and some pictures are ancient and have different backgrounds as well. So as you look, try to ignore these annoying little details and let me know if you have any suggestions.
Finally, please share this website with your friends and family. You can sign up for my email blasts by using the contact page. I rarely send things so your inbox will not blow up with Cary Calhoun Designs but you will be informed of upcoming events and trunk shows.
Thank you so much for checking this out!
