Family Jewels



Shooting jewelry on large format cameras with chrome ain't easy, folks. This was my third attempt. Our assignment for Advertising Photography was to shoot jewelry close-up and make it "dazzling". This necklace belonged to my aunt and maybe my grandmother before that so I hope I did it justice.



Set up involved two Broncolors (one with a grid and one with a snoot), a black panel for the background and lots and lots of time (and barely enough patience).

You did a wonderful job with this jewelry assignment. I know you had to re-shoot many times, but that is what it takes to get an image as nice as this. I like that the jewelry means something to you. Beautiful.
