Modahaus Tabletop Photo Studio or Steady Stand Kit Giveaway!

By on Monday, February 17, 2014 168 Comments

You know how much I like my Modahaus Tabletop Studios. But don't take just my word for it.  Helen Breil, a polymer clay artist and fellow member of the Grand River Bead Society bought one and the Steady Stead and loves it!  I took this picture of Helen at our January meeting. She had brought in her units so she could photograph designs by other members.

Modahaus now has a full range of photostudios in different sizes.  The TS320, the mid size one is the most useful as it is large enough for even jewelry group pictures.  Check out my review here. The jewelry photographs here (with the exception of the last one) were taken with the TS320.

The smartcase/diffuser can also be used as a background blocker for mannequin shots.  Who needs to see household clutter or distracting outdoor scenes?  Focus on the jewelry!

Although the amount and quality of light can vary even in a single day, natural light is still the easiest to work with.  Just choose a bright (not necessarily sunny) day and be close to a window.

The new Modahaus photostudios now come with 6 background colors.  Helen really loves the black one. She tried putting the black over the white background sheets. She said, "I get a nice dramatic (image) - dark grey and black beads still show up. I used to use black suede for my black background but anything black totally disappeared. I use natural light and I get a bit of the gradated look. I'm still experimenting but I like the look."  Here is the picture she sent me of her beautiful creation :

I too love the black.  It works well for some jewelry designs making the silver and colored material stand out.  This one was the All Tied Up in a Bow necklace I created for a Prima Bead post. The tutorial for the cord ends is here.  I like how the Modahaus studio background somehow gives that wonderful gradation of light without any effort from me!

I also experiment with the polymer sheets. Placing the blue over the black gave me a deeper blue color background which I used for the alternative picture in this Etsy listing :

The polymer sheets are easy care and anti-static.  They are just wipe clean.  Tip - the last few stubborn dust flecks can be removed with a Swiffer duster!

If you are having trouble with white backgrounds and don't like the black, consider grey backgrounds instead.  Often the choice of backgrounds will be dictated by the design.  I use all three - white, black and grey- on my Etsy.  Some artisans also use scrapbook paper for different hues.  It all depends on the look you want for your designs and store.

The Modahahus products are a wonderful aid to great jewelry photographs.  However, it is is also imperative to know how to use one's camera.  Check the links below for all sorts of photography tips from Lex McColl, the professional photographer and inventor of Modahaus.

Helen was already into photography so she understood how to use her camera effectively.  I on the other hand had no prior interest until I was dragged into the world of macro photography.  Once in it, I began to enjoy it more and more! It really pays to experiment with your camera.

I have an older Panasonic Lumix (DMC ZS10) compact camera with some dSLR functions.  Cameras with a lot of options do deliver very good results but they have a steeper learning curve.

Recently I have been using my iPhone 5 more and more.  There's not much to change. It is so convenient and FAST!  It doesn't make sense to spend more time taking photographs than actually making the pieces!  See my post on How to Use Your Smartphone for Jewelry Photography.  I usually use natural light for actual jewelry pictures but switch to daylight CFL bulbs in my basement workshop for tutorials.

If you do a great deal of overhead product photography, then the Modahaus multisized Steady Stand Kit  will be useful. It is a versatile unit as it has all sorts of additional scanning uses - see my review.  The new steady stands are designed to support all kinds of cameras, smartphones and tablets and can team up with a tabletop studio.


The steady stand works well to capture whole necklaces beautifully using my iPad.

  125. I'm a single mom of 5 living in a tiny 2 bedroom apt. Unfortunately, because my youngest son (he's 6) has autism, I've been unable to work outside the home so I recently began an Etsy shop selling Vintage jewelry to try to make ends meet . I'm really hoping to get some of my polymer clay work listed at some point...

    However...because of lack of space (he and I even share the couch at night to sleep!) and his adorably 'destructive' personality it's been very difficult to set up any type of semi permanent tabletop studio to take photos!

    I discovered Modahaus Photo Studio products a few weeks ago online and it would be PERFECT - I could set it up on a large piece of poster board(or similar) and when my little destroyer turns his attention from whatever back to me, I can just pop the whole setup quickly on top of the fridge before he does his Bull in China Shop "impression!! Winning this would be fantastic as finances don't permit...and frankly., I could use some" winning" to be honest! I'm a subscriber and I LOVE your blog! Wishthen@yahoo.com

  127. Taking photos of my jewelry are really a challenge for me. It's really difficult to capture the true beauty of each piece in a photo. I wish I could win a Modahaus system. My B'day is Feb. 24th, the day you are making the drawing! Your photos look great.

  129. This looks like it would be a great answer to getting super shots of jewelry and beads. Probably one of the hardest things we do!

    Thanks Pearl, and I'm a subscriber to your blog.

  130. This looks ingenious and easy to use. Helen's pictures are always great! It's nice to see a system that doesn't take up so much room and tons of lighting equipment. I'd love to win this, thanks for sponsoring a giveaway.

  141. I would love to win either set. I try so very hard to take nice photos of my pieces, but I still get shadows around the edges and glares off the gemstones. I love how compact these studio sets are. I could fit this on my work table, take pictures and then store it without a problem. Thank you for this chance to win one. *Crossing all my fingers and toes*

  163. Natural light is the best way to go. I've tried different lighting and I never am able to get the great results from other sources like I get from daylight. It would be really cool to win the Modahaus photo studio to take my jewelry photography to a higher level.

  164. This would be so cool. It would make the photos look so professional!

  165. It would be great to own one of these!
