Jewelry catalog shooting
Photo shooting for a catalog of jewelry
Jewelry photography is considered one of the most difficult types of photography. The photographer is required to have a good understanding of metals and precious stones, which interact with light in different ways. Small jewelry cannot be photographed at a resolution sufficient for printing without special equipment. It is also necessary to note the important contribution of a professional retoucher who knows how to work with a jewelry to reach the perfect result.
Preparing for shooting.
Wherever photography takes place, a number of preparatory steps are required. If shooting is required against a simple background (white or black), then you only need to clean the metal of the products from dirt, as well as from traces of oxidation. If you are planning an image or art shoot, then you need to carefully discuss with the photographer all the nuances of shooting and develop a shooting concept. Ideally, for each photo, draw up a sketch and, using this data, prepare and purchase requisite for shooting (possibly, both by the photographer and by the customer).
Working with metal requires from a photographer not only skills, but also special equipment. Without this, it is impossible to achieve perfect result.
