    This course – Jewelry Photography Part 1 – Studio Work is an extensive course in jewelry photography. As with most of the Photigy training, it is free form and as such, you get a real-world look at how product photography is created in the studio.

    The first part is an introduction and a look at the equipment that you will need to begin to create jewelry based product photography.

    Part 2 is two separate workshops that were held in 2013. The first one was an online workshop with students attending online and covers shooting a single object with multiple items combined. The second was recorded with students live in the studio as well as those who attended online. It covers the shooting of a wide range of jewelry items, textures, and settings.

      Now examines just how to use a point and shoot camera, to get relatively good portfolio shots.  Keep in mind, this may not be of quality for professional results to give to a client, but can be used to build a body of work when you are just getting started.

      – 10:03 – minutes of video along with a written tutorial on the use of focus stacking. This is a process that is used when the shot is critical and there is not enough depth-of-field using tilt-shift or other methods cannot produce quality results over the whole of the object.

    Second Course: Jewelry Retouching

    7 hours 40 min of video tutorials

     Even the best of shots in the studio will still need Photoshop work done after the shooting is done.

    Here in Jewelry Photography Part 2 – Post-Production you will gain the fundamental skills to finish the job. Even if you plan on sending your work out to a professional retoucher, having these basic skills will not only allow you to save time and money by performing some initial cleanup, but will put you in position to better communicate to the retoucher that which you want done.

    Jewelry-Post-Production-2

    While the basics for processing each of the images have the same workflow, the exact steps for processing the image will differ based on the content of the image.

    You will begin by opening the image in Adobe Camera Raw – if you use Adobe Lightroom, the exact same processing can be done there before importing into Adobe Photoshop.

    From there the processing will guide you through the cleaning up of any spots caused from dust on the object or on the sensor of your camera, adjusting lines and shadows, removing or correcting any kind of distracting elements as well as other adjustments that result in improving the overall quality of your image.

    Jewelry-Post-Production-3

    While there are times that the amount of post-production work is minimal – this is especially important when creating catalog work where there are a lot of shots of basic images, there are other times where quite a bit of adjustment is needed. It is here that you will learn how to use the many tools that Adobe Photoshop has to offer such as the Clone Stamp tool, Healing Brush, adjustment layers, and more.

    Jewelry Photography Part 2 – Post-Production

    You will spend your time improving your images, but the whole point of all of this training is not to watch, but to do your own work and use this training as a starting point to creating your own body of work. So go out, create your own images, work them through post-production, and then start over again. It is through this repetition that you will accomplish your goals to become a better product photographer.
