Shoot artistic photos with background textures

May 31st, 2011

There may come a time where you may want to shoot artistic product photographs of your jewelry items or other products without having the typical clean white background. Instead you may want to have a unique and stylish look in your photos by using a  texture or background material.

We have shot lots of product photographs with multiple types of real and artificial backgrounds to add flavor to our photos. Take a look at some of our examples of how we have used backgrounds when shooting  jewelry – View sample photos in our gallery. In these sample photos we have used items such as leaves, stones, granite, metallic backgrounds, reflective acrylics, special textiles and many other types of backgrounds.

Shoot your own creative photographs

You may also easily achieve and shoot your own unique product photographs by simply being creative. You can pretty much use any type of background or texture that you can fit inside your photography lighting system . All you have to do is to simply put the background on your system’s platform, and then put your products inside. We recommend that you always use a physical background or texture in your photos, instead of adding a digital background on the computer during the editing process (in a program like Photoshop).

To help you start, take a look at this gallery of high-resolution backgrounds and textures which you can print yourself in high-quality photography paper and use as a physical background for your photos (matte or glossy, although matte will look more real). Use the standard 8.5 x 11 sheets of photo paper, or get one of these images printed on a larger scale (please make sure to read the website’s copyright notices.

The Sparkle That Sells

December 18th, 2010

The Sparkle That Sells

It’s a jewelry salesperson’s dream—seeing that twinkle in a customer’s eye as she turns a diamond ring from side to side in the light of your store, fascinated by the way the stone sparkles and seems to give off a light of its own.

It’s no secret that in the jewelry business, sparkle sells. Think that there’s nothing you can do to help Mother Nature’s creations look their best? The good news is there is—install LED lighting solutions in your display cases, on countertops and in overhead lights.

How Does LED Lighting Make Jewelry Look Better?

Since jewelry only reflects light, rather than producing it, it’s key to have the best-quality lights shining on your merchandise. Our high-quality LED lighting is unparalleled in its similarity to natural sunlight. The intensity, sparkle and brilliance it produces in diamonds is simply revolutionary—and is the best way to display diamonds and other precious stones to the best effect.

What is optimal LED Lighting?

To produce the most brilliance from your stones, use 12 individual sources of hard lighting per foot. Call us today [link to Contact Us] to discuss your particular set-up; our LED lighting solutions [link to LED products page] each contain different amounts of LEDs at different intensities, and we can help select the right product for you.

With these insights into LED lighting benefits and spacing, you can create an in-store environment where your jewelry can truly shine—and sell!
