Multi-Layer Composing In Jewelry Photography

Pro Club Workshop #91

Multi-Layer Composing In Jewelry Photography,
Pro Club Workshop

This is a jewelry photography tutorial for the Professional Interactive Education Program, Workshop #91

In this workshop, students will learn how to use creative lighting techniques to create an eye-catching image without spending too much time setting up a perfect light for each element of the composition.

For example – sharp and contrast light works great for the sand we used as a background for this image but has a devastating effect on tiger eye gemstone and polished metal.  In this workshop, we’ll show you how to shoot each element of the composition with perfect light and then combine all images into a dynamic and eye-catching final photo.

This workshop will be great for photographers with a good experience in jewelry shooting, as well as beginners. Retouchers will also find plenty of great information here, we have over 2 hours of post-production in Adobe Photoshop included in this workshop.

Your instructors for this workshop are Alex Koloskov and Anna Kevorkian
