Maybe one of your New Year's resolutions was to start selling your handmade beaded jewelry, or to increase sales of your handmade jewelry online. Are you thinking about entering juried shows and competitions with your jewelry in 2013? Then you're going to need to know how to take great photos, and how to get the most out of your photo editing software.
After watching both of Jim Lawson's fantastic DVDs, How to Photograph Your Jewelry
and Shoot, Share, Sell
, I'm excited to tell you that you can now attend a live, online seminar (webinar) with this talented and knowledgeable jewelry photographer
Taking fantastic photographs of your finished jewelry is so important for anyone who wants to make money selling jewelry. Particularly if you sell online or want to enter high-end juried craft shows, great photographs are absolutely necessary so that viewers can see all of the hard work you put into creating your pieces. If someone can't see or touch your jewelry in person, photographs become the most important way of letting potential buyers see everything that is wonderful about your jewelry.
Knowing how to edit your photos using software like Photoshop and Lightroom is a skill that can pay off big when you're trying to make a living by selling your jewelry. For years, Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine photographer Jim Lawson has used this software to create the stunning images you see in the magazine, and now he wants to share his decades of knowledge and expertise with YOU.
In this live, one-hour webinar, you can learn how to use Photoshop and Lightroom to get the most out of your jewelry photographs and ask him questions, all from the comfort of your own home. After the webinar, you'll receive access to a recording of the session so that you can refer back to Jim's instructions again and again. Even if you can't make it to the live presentation, your registration will allow you to watch a recording of the webinar any time that it's convenient for you.
Whether you can make it to the live webinar or not, you'll also receive free downloads of the photography tutorials that are demonstrated so you can refer to them as you work with your own photographs. And as an added bonus, everyone who registers for this one-time-only webinar will receive a coupon for 30% off Jim's other best-selling video workshops, How to Photograph Your Jewelry and Shoot, Share, Sell.
Learning how to edit your own jewelry photographs to get professional-looking results is a smart investment for anyone who wants to start or expand their jewelry business, and you can participate in this live webinar and get all of the bonuses I mentioned above for less than twenty bucks!
Jewelry Making Daily's Tammy Jones will be there as well, moderating and feeding your live questions to Jim throughout the presentation. There are only 1,000 spots available for this live webinar, so you'll want to make sure that you reserve your seat now!
After you purchase your "seat" for the webinar in the Beading Daily Shop, you will receive a confirmation email with all the information that you need to complete your online registration.
