    I've basically entered into an ongoing partnership with the owners of the jewelry company to shoot any additional images in the same style when they give them to me.

    But I'm really glad to have this out from over my head. Now I can get back to doing what I want on my days off from my real career.
    Your experience has mirrored my wife's almost exactly. I keep sharing your process with her and she laughs and laughs and laughs. I think it's pretty safe to say she will never do jewelry for websites again.

    I can't say it didn't pay well. I basically shot for the moon when I quoted the original 75 piece trial (it worked out to about $35/piece) and they basically said, "Oh, is that all?? Okay!" Maybe I should have doubled my asking price?

    Ah well. Considering each piece took me an average of fifteen minutes of actual imaging and post-processing, then my hourly rate was pretty freakin' good. It just took SO MUCH TIME away from my family, whom I already miss time with being away half the week for the real job.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    After I got done with the project, I upgraded to OSX Mavericks. Now, I've got to go back and reshoot a half dozen pendants and I find out that Lightroom4 is not fully compatible with Mavericks, and I have to upgrade to LR5.

    Grumble.
