The Shop: Fine Jewelry Photoshoot

Today was a nice cloudy day outside, giving me good conditions for re-shooting some of my fine jewelry pieces in the shop. The clouds give a nice cover to the sun’s bright rays, while still giving me nice enough lighting for some shots. I decided to re-shoot some of my items because I’m not liking the plain white background that I chose to show case my finest items. I thought that they needed a little nature vibe to them to bring out their true colors and let them shine. I think they came out pretty good considering I’m only shooting with an Iphone!

Here’s a few of before and afters, I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to leave me a comment of what you think of the new backgrounds as well! I love having public feedback to work with, it really helps me know what people are looking for when deciding on whether or not to click on an item.

  1. I can’t believe you took those on a Iphone, gotta love Apple!
    I think the necklaces really work on the natural background (I love your designs btw), but for me anyway, the earings stand out much more on a stark white background as they don’t pop as much as the beautiful coloured necklaces.

    • Thank you! And I agree with you there. I think the necklaces do “pop” more with the natural background. I’m still not sure about the solid white though. I don’t really like how shiny it makes the metal, it’s hard to take out during editing. Maybe a more softer light background would do well for the less colorful pieces.

  2. Perfect timing, I was just trying to photograph some of my jewelry to set up an Etsy shop. I like playing with natural objects for my backgrounds too. I like the background for the earrings, myself. While I like the backgrounds on the pendents I feel like the pendents get a lost a little. Maybe just crop out and focus just on the pink stone. The other one I would try hanging it more like it would on a neck. Just some thoughts. It may not work out as well as I think it would, but something to try. I’ve had some luck with just a nice piece of wood with some nice graining in it. Gives it interest without too much going on. Also, I read that a graduated background works well. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for the advice Ang! I like experimenting with other ways of laying out the jewelry instead of your typical way of just hanging things. Still getting a hang of the angles, but I love attempting the non-traditional shots. :)
