This week we’ll be taking photos of jewelry. There are a couple of ways you can approach this. One option is to imagine that you are taking a product shot for a client (or yourself) to help sell the jewelry in an online shop. In this case, all the focus should be on the jewelry without any distractions, such as the image below. The goal is to arrange the jewelry in an appealing composition, eliminate reflections, reduce shadows and capture sharp detail throughout the piece of jewelry. Alternatively, the jewelry can be part of a larger scene such as a model wearing jewelry or the jewelry arranged on props, e.g. wedding rings on a flower, etc.
There are many of articles online that offer tips on how to photograph jewelry. It seems like each article focuses on a slightly different style. I encourage you to look through a few of them and find a style that you want to try.
- Take a photo of jewelry – either a single piece or a set.
- Post your newly taken photo during the week of Sunday, January 19 through Saturday, January 25.
- Please remember to comment on at least FIVE photo submissions this week by answering the question “why?” in your comments. In other words, “why do I like (or not like) this photo?” or “why did this photo catch my eye?” Thank you!
The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:
- Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
- Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo: #2020photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
- Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2020 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
