Porcelain Sheep Brooch by Cherie Peyton
Cherie Peyton from the studios asked me for some help to make her Porcelain Sheep Brooch stand out on Etsy. This was a simple request that made us both happy. I had seen people wearing the adornment looking quite dapper and confident, so much that it even inspired me purchase one as a gift which had in turn was named Derick.
With that as a happy setup, I soon found that this project had several challenges to overcome, including:
- Low contrast white on white, while preserving blue eyes and a pinkish nose
- An anthropomorphic portrait which looks back at you and wants to be friends
- A small scale, somewhere between tabletop and macro photography, which is in that annoying gap range of my lens set
- Needing to display a fine product that inspires a conversion to a sale after all.
