JEWELLERY PREPARATION


In order to create seamless jewellery photography there are certain item preparation required. We need to ensure that there are no fingerprints, dust or marks on jewellery item. In some instances, marks, dust and product imperfections that cannot be clearly visible by a human are well reflected in the image. It is imperative to ensure your jewellery item is clean and ready for the shoot. Prior to the photo shooting, the stone needs to be cleaned and polished with the cloth. The product imperfection can be easily picked up by the camera; therefore jewellery item needs to be well prepared prior to photographing.

LIGHTING


The light reflection is a very critical aspect of the jewellery product photography as improper light settings may not only create a shadowing but also make the gemstone looks dull and faded. For example, when photographing opals, we need to select additional flashing option to bring out the gorgeous colour play. The goal when photographing jewellery is to create soft even light with minimal shadow. With soft and even lighting gemstone will sparkle in its natural colours and any jewellery will shine in its best look.

POPULAR ANGLES


When selecting the right angle to photograph jewellery, we need to consider a sell-able point of the item. Do we take a front shot only or side view? When the right angle is selected it allows us to feature jewellery product in its best composition and lighting. Most popular jewellery product photography angle is a side view as it’s portrays a whole jewellery item. However, there are instances when customer has precise style that they wish to maintain throughout the whole website or jewellery collection. With this in mind, we need to maintain the image shooting angles as specified by the requirements.

FOCUS


To get a crispy clear image of the precious stone is an import step in jewellery product photography process. When photographing a jewellery product the focus needs to be sharp to showcase the colour depth of the gemstone. Camera needs to capture all the important elements of the jewellery. One of the first thing to do is to concentrate on camera’s maximum depth of field. This will allow us to focus on the entire item, so that all jewellery elements are captured. Unfortunately, we cannot simply use the auto focus technique here, as the camera focuses on the closest elements of the jewellery, meaning the rest of the item will be blurry. Furthermore, sometimes even with the right balance of light and settings we might need to perform extra image manipulations and cropping.

In order to create well balanced jewellery photography where the front and the back of the item is sharp, crispy and clear, we have to include one extra step into the process. Firstly, the jewellery needs to be positioned right for the best possible shoot. The first photograph will focus on the jewellery item itself, however the additional step is when we photograph the background and some shadings. Next phase will be performed in the post production phase when two images are merged into one to create a flawless jewellery image with the shadow.

SHADOW AND REFLECTION


Jewellery product photography is a delicate and sensible work of art. When it comes to creating a soft natural reflection certain things need to be considered. Reflection is one of them. Precious stones, gemstones, metal and fine elements that are used in making a piece of jewellery are highly reflective. When improper equipment, incorrect camera settings and lighting are used in photographing jewellery, the photographs appear with many shadows, reflections and spots.

In many cases, jewellery product photography is like photographing a mirror when you can see lights, studio surroundings, camera and yourself. Furthermore, use of bright flash during the photo session may only over expose the item. In reverse, insufficient lighting may under illuminate the jewellery product and the image will be dark and have uneven lighting.

When photographing jewellery you may wish to add a creative shadow to your item in order to showcase a 3D look. That’s when we add different shadows and reflections when photographing in order to produce uniquely creative image.

WATCH PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY


For photographing detailed items like watch the process we follow is similar to photographing jewellery products. The aim is to produce high quality images with great focus on details and polished image. Firstly, the watch needs to be prepared prior the photo shooting and that’s where we clean and polish with a clean soft brush to remove any marks and dirt. Upon the completion of the item preparation the next imperative step is the positioning of the item. That is where we determine if the watch will be shot front facing or sideways. Consistency is a key to a beautiful desirable photograph. When shooting a watch product rage we ensure the image consistency is maintained.

Another very important part of the watch product photography is lighting. With correct light settings and light reflection we are able to captivate the gradual details of the watch. Watches come in a different combination of materials, metal, plastic and stones. That is why correct lighting is a crucial part of the watch product photography.

To photograph a watch is a very challenging task; however image editing and retouching is also requires a great amount of effort, knowledge, skills, experience and expertise. Our experience in photographing and retouching watches has led us to some outstanding results. Our attention to details and experience continues to satisfy our customers.

In order to create well balanced jewellery photography where the front and the back of the item is sharp, crispy and clear, we have to include one extra step into the process. Firstly, the jewellery needs to be positioned right for the best possible shoot. The first photograph will focus on the jewellery item itself, however the additional step is when we photograph the background and some shadings.
