…not quite perfect…but I do see some improvement in my ability to keep the camera steady and not have too much glare from the rhinestones on jewelry I photograph.
I like how this photograph turned out but I’d use a darker background next time. I was trying to match the background to the metal but a plain, dark background might have highlighted the piece more effectively.
This photograph is okay but it doesn’t show the detail of the stones. The five large ones are each tricolored – pale green, pale pink, and clear. I’ve heard them referred to as “watermelon rhinestones.” They are large art glass stones with some leafy texture, too, which I wasn’t able to capture. The round middle one is a darker green-pink-clear aurora borealis, but the iridescence was hard to capture. More practice needed here!
I think this turned out pretty well though I’d use a different background if it didn’t entail moving the flower. Maybe I could get my cat to sit quietly behind it while I take more photos. (Not likely!)
I’ve taken dozens of photos of this necklace and this is the one I like best. It highlights the pretty rhinestones on the front of the necklace, and I can see the shapes of the beads.
