Jewelry photography day 2.


Alright, it’s not really day two, but at least it’s first shot! I dealed a little with it in Photoshop and will play more with reflections to get the right feel (but not in Photoshop, but on the set). What do you think? It’s ISO50. I think I will get more black in the corners of the ring, like a black frame somehow. Also it’s a little too tilted. :) But that’s not the important part right now.

Right now, I only play with fake rings – will get the real stuff when it’s time for the real deal. About 200 of them.

Light from above, two paper reflectors on the side. Elinchrom Quadra. Sigma SD15, Sigma 70mm.

    Looks fabulous. I like how the black works. I’m wondering how a little more DOF would look.

  3. The workflow.

    Starting image – before retouch.

    Fist simple adjustments in LR3. With the “real deal” I will use SPP and then adjust using LR and PS.

    Did you reverse the image? The writing in the ring looks backwards?

    The jewelry is fantastic and the photography is best one.
