Using What Is Available To You
Recently in college we were studying product photography, and on this particular day jewelry. I was immediately interested as i wanted to know how to create good stock photos and make a little more money! I presumed we would be using fancy lighting setups and light boxes and tables. I was a little surprised when our tutor told us to use what we had available. To use only available lighting, and the backdrops what we had available to us in our class room.
I just wanted to show you all the results so that you can see what can be created using what you have. If you have a full kitted out studio, then that's a bonus, but i was actually really surprised by what can be created using what you have around you.
I was shooting with a Nikon D50 and lens 55 - 200, so i was limited, but its the only lens i have!! I didn't have my tripod, so most of the shots were taken with the camera leaning on a table and the timer button to avoid camera shake and blur of the image.
Here are a few of the shots.
Hope you learned something from this.
