Then I got the idea to use a textured background! Even worse!
Then I got sidetracked and started looking at cupcake recipes. Wait a minute. Cupcakes aren't photographed on plain white backgrounds. Or on burlap. Or from above. Let's see if we can photograph beads like cupcakes!
An interesting background, some props, a little prospective. I think I'm on to something here!
A little over cropped, but still more interesting. What do you think?
