I decided I needed to do a test shoot so that I could figure out how I was going to position each object. I photographed at home using natural lighting and a white background on a brown table, sometimes using a white tablecloth. The pictures weren’t of the best quality due to the lack of decent lighting. Some of the images do look quite plain, which I think is because you need to know the history of the heirloom to understand the importance of it. I’m struggling to decide on how to make my photos look more interesting without needing text as an explanation.
