Unintentional New Photography Backgrounds

Blizzard Lampwork Ring $15.00

Not only has the snow been pretty to look at and play in, but it has provided me with a lovely new background, at least for a day or so until it melts. I think it shows off this new ring I made, titled "Blizzard" just perfectly. Even though it was unintentional (and cold!), it has made me realize that maybe there are other, better backgrounds out there for me to use for my photography. What kind of backgrounds have you discovered? What works for you? For me it has to be natural lighting (outside) for the best pics. I've tried a light box and it just didn't work for me. But oh how I wish I could take pictures inside at night. Sometimes there are great things that come out of 2 AM beading sessions that I have a hard time waiting to list until the sun is out!

That blizzard ring is gorgeous and I love the background!
I can't believe you still have snow on the ground up there, I thought it would be long gone by now!

Wow, pretty picture!!

It will be fun to see what kinds of suggestions you get for photos, because I often ponder the same thing!

I hate waiting to photograph and list, too. I only get to do it on the weekends since it's dark when I go to work and dark when I get home :(.

Gorgeous ring, btw!
