Learn how to use light painting in jewelry photography

This course is for jewelry photographers, and it is about light painting technique that you can use in your jewelry photography work.

Unlike with most jewelry and product photography, there are no light modifiers that will be needed: we did not use softboxes, diffusers or reflectors for this course. Only a camera with a macro lens, LED light and a few other DIY things were used to create the images for this course.
