I NEVER use a flash, whether it's bows, jewelry, or whatever. I do a little editing with http://www.photoshop.com
, which is free. I attached one of my jewelry pics and one of my headband/clippie pics for you to see.
Thank you for your opinion, but I bought this already & am so glad you found what works for you. I want to see your pics before you edit so we're comparing apples to apples. What you're seeing here is pre-edited photos.
I made one of these boxes before with tissue paper & a box & it was a PITA to store & the pics came out about the same quality (pre-editing).
I'm going to play with mine later. I will post before & after pics.
