Estatements – Valentine’s Jewelry (Product Photography) @ Los Altos

Jewelry photography is probably one of the hardest types of photography there is. It shouldn’t be, I mean the stuff doesn’t move, and you don’t have to worry about it throwing a tantrum or anything – but working in really close simply pushes the physics of optics to the point where the tiniest camera movement will shift the focal point of your shot. The depth of field is so shallow, even at the smallest apertures, that focus becomes a real challenge. And then there’s lighting – shiny things are tough to properly light, especially when your camera is so physically close to the subject. Anyways, here’s my best effort for this client, I think a few shots came out well.
