One of the first things that I’ve noticed since moving to Portland was that every photo that I take seems to come out with a natural blue tint cast over them. Being a one person shop (well, now sometimes with an assistant or two), I take all of my product shots myself. I didn’t realize how lucky I was in Los Angeles where the photo-taking in SoCal warm natural lights made the products look a little more desirable–a nice bonus to a novice photographer like me. Here in Portland, I find myself in Photoshop taking out that blue, whenever I take shop pictures like I did today.
It took a while, but EllaCosette packaging is ready in time for Valentines Day gift orders. Feel free to take advantage of 20 percent discount by using the code, LUV20.
Why did I change the shop name to EllaCosette? An easy answer is that the former name that I just randomly picked back in 2013, always bothered me because it didn’t sound like a jewelry shop name. Although I don’t know what a jewelry shop names should sound like, but “StudioGoods” wasn’t it. Ella Cosette means beautiful warrior. I intend to share a bit more in the near future about what I now think of this little path that I’ve created called jewelry making, if you’ve been following me for a while and at all curious. So, check back soon and have a great Super Bowl Sunday. And here are the words that I thought I’d never say, “Go Rams!”
