for Luke

Hi Luke,

Good pointer, thanks for putting it in. I love the fact that he comps his images. I do the same for interiors work (56 shots for my last image!), but I have to admit I've been working very hard to get my jewellery and product shots in one. It was a moment for me

Cheers!

Chas

Hi there,

I have been asked to shoot some diamonds to a high standard and would appreciate any tips from other professionals with experience here.

Previously I have only shot product/fashion for my clients so I am not entirely confident in this specific area. I am assuming back lit with black cards around the front for definition in the stone but if anyone has done this before and has any tips I'd really appreciate it.
Cheers!
