I always love shooting Lindsay Jane Designs’ latest custom pieces, and this time it was a pair of earrings that could be worn four ways: alone (as a geometric shaped stud), or with zircon, amber, or moonstone dangles. Each variation was shot individually on white, then combined as seen in the image above to show all the options next to each other.
Zircon & Spinel from Ambassador GemsI loved having the opportunity to do another photo shoot for Ambassador Gems, including their AGTA Spectrum award-winning cushion cut blue zircon. These images were all shot on a white background, with the camera’s focus mostly on the crown of the stone to help keep the doubling of the zircon from becoming distracting.
Another photo shoot for Mr. Colored Stones: Joe De Bella, of DeBella Fine Gems & Jewelry Arts. Per usual, we’re doing a white background version of each piece (shown here), as well as an ivory colored background that Joe likes to use on his website. I adore both of these rings: the pink pearl set off by zircons on either side, and the emerald in a sea of sapphires.
In other, unrelated news, I’m getting quite tired of this blog’s layout and will be devoting some time to fix it up before the autumn onslaught arrives next month!
A couple weeks ago I did a quick shoot for Adam Neeley Fine Art Jewelry. Like most people with a pulse, I am a big fan of Adam’s work. His vision in creating unique designs and showcasing beautiful stones is remarkable.
As with previous shoots, we did a mix of solid black and black gradient backgrounds. I tend to prefer the lighting of the black gradient, but the solid black creates a nice seamless look on their black website theme. The setup for shooting is quite similar, with minor differences in lighting and focus.
