Stamp of Approval


I love these fun stamp necklaces from Julie Bishop over at Juler’s Row. I photographed these hanging against a white board, then digitally clipped the pieces from the background, placed them onto an even white-r blank canvas, and added a reflection for some dimension. I also shot & edited the chain on only one of the necklaces, and used that same piece for all three images. This allowed me to deliver a much more visually consistent image, where the chain hangs at exactly the same angles in every shot. This doesn’t make sense in every situation, but in a case like this where there are a few variations on the same design concept, it’s a perfect way to make a website or catalog page look polished and professional.

Chrissy of Faith & Grace Jewelry got in touch with me earlier this year about shooting some of her new line. She was building a website (which turned out fabulously) and wanted some professional shots to use for it. She sent me dozens of pieces for individual product shots, as well as some more creative images to use for feature/home pages. The shoot took about a week, and when it was over, she actually emailed me some of her own shots to do the retouching on so that she could get new styles posted right away. Chrissy is lovely to work with, and her quick success with this line speaks to her sense of what her clients are craving.
