Step One: Consultation
It begins with a conversation. We will talk about your jewelry, your vision for you photos, as well as the purpose of your photos such as for your own website, online markets, social media, or for print. We will discuss what you would like for editing such as but not limited to:
Background- white, black, other color, transparent, gradient, textured, etc.
Positioning- facing forward, flat, angled, side profile, etc.
Flaw Correction- some jewelry is meant to look natural with small but visible imperfections that show it's hand made quality while other jewelry receives more photoshopping than fashion models. That's all up to you.
Flat Lays- endless possibilities here!
Jewelry Texture- if you have ever tried to shoot smooth silver, you understand the special challenges this reflective texture involves. Leather on the other hand, is a walk in the park. These are factors to consider when putting together your photography plan.
