Tonight I set out to complete a little experiment. Could I complete the conception, setup and processing of some photographs in one night. I wanted to convey crisp photographs with a clear subject. A white background and one or two objects did the trick. The jewelry below is a mix from my wife’s collection. Some she bought and others she made.
This was the setup I used to capture all of the pictures above. Moving the light to bounce off one side or another makes some subtle changes in the catch lights and the shadows. I used a 28-135mm “macro” lens on the Canon 7D and played around with the angles while taking the pictures. The pictures turned out better than I thought with the little planning and time that I had to complete the project.
