H E L L O !
My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.
What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

New papercuts to be available for purchase soon.
I am still struggling with taking product photos. Me and cameras do not get along. I've become adapt and manipulating photos in Photoshop, but there's a limit to what can be done. You don't want to know how dark, blurry, tinted and grainy the photo above was before I tinkered with it. And I took it during the day, too! Sometimes I think my computer is doing something to the photos during transfer to make them turn out this way (they look better - bright and in focus - on the camera, I swear!) but I haven't caught what it is yet. I've tried taking pictures at different times of the day, in different places, against different backdrops and nothing seems to work. I even reset the camera to its factory settings, thinking it'll clean up its act. Nothing.
I'll keep on trying, though. What do you think of the white on white look?
