Badges Smadges

Inspired by my love of all things shiny, I've just finished some terrier-ific badges. Trouble is, they're very difficult to photograph as I keep getting light reflecting off the surface. Any tips from budding photographers out there?



The glare on these isn't too bad, but I've another couple which are on darker backgrounds which I'm almost tearing my hair out over.

I'm also deliberating over what to label them in my various webstores; here in the UK we call them badges, but it seems in the US they're known as buttons. How strange!

You can buy them from my Etsy and Folksy shops...hope to get them onto my website later this week

You could call them button badges! If badges are buttons what on earth are buttons in the US? When I photograph shiny things I use my bedroom window as light box, put down a large sheet of white paper to throw the light around works a treat! My press is finally restored can't wait to get started! Happy letterpressing! - Jax
