Ok, I've re-taken photos for each item in my etsy store. I'm using very pale pastel backgrounds in ivory (pale yellow), green, aqua, purple, and peachy-pink. I'm much happier with these photos because I think that the earrings and necklaces "pop" more than they did with either the white background or the darker, more saturated backgrounds. I think I need to lighten a few more just a little bit, but overall I'm happy. What do you think?
I also think that my pain has turned a corner. It was really, really bad last night and I didn't get to sleep until quite late. Since then it's been well under control. Let's hope it stays that way :)
Overall, it's been a pretty good day. I'm looking forward to actually making some things tomorrow, though - photographing and editing takes a loooooong time.
