I recently had the chance to do another shoot for LeightWorks‘ hand cut crystal jewelry. This time, we stuck to a clean white background. Each image is actually a compilation of two photos; a necessity due to the “phenomenal” nature of the glass. I first take an image of the piece with a dark (gray or black) surface behind or around the glass, to make the color appear. Then I take an image of the piece on a white background, per usual, so that the reflections in the metal are of the white surroundings and not black. I then layer the images in Photoshop to show the best of each image.
