I recently photographed over 200 pieces of Chinese jewelry/jades/stones. These are for a local auction company.
I Initially started with white background. But I later realize the piece looks much better with black background. They look more elegant with black background.
These are just a few of them. Every piece looks very elegant.
The company have their own studio. So I am glad I can use their equipment rather than bring my own. They have studio light. That is a pleasure to use. I learned my still photography skill with my speed light at home. I never used studio light before. It is really a lot easier to photography product with studio light. What you see is pretty much what you get..Cool!!!
Shooting with white background is easy. I do not need to do post production. It come out just completely white. But for black background. I need to do many retouch. Because those dust on the glass surface will be visible. Also the edge of the surface will be seen.
