PictoWriMo Day 4

Jewelry, it’s a beautiful thing and can be art on your body. We all want it and in weddings it is an integral part of the ceremony. So why is it that something so beautiful is so hard to photograph. It’s the fact that it’s detail is on such a small scale; If you shoot from a short distance you’ll lose the beauty of the piece. So close focusing and lighting is absolutely essential.

Also, a ring by itself on a black background can be elegant if done right but can be hideous if done improperly. So getting interesting background props that don’t take away from the piece are important also. So here’s today theme: Jewelry.
