Beautiful, simply beautiful. What a stunning model and I like our lighting. One thing I'd change though is to lighten the right side of her face, I don't like that her forehead is in shadow. But other than that this is superb.

author says:

I appreciate your comments, especially the one about her face in shadow. This was deliberate........... the shot was set up this way to emphasise the gems. My idea was to keep just part of the face a little darker to give it a little 'mysterious' effect. The client did actually want more of the face to be darkened, but I did not like this idea.

This was shot number 89 out of about 130....... a lot of the others were and will be used, but this one best suited the theme it was shot for.

Beautiful, just wish the necklace was a little sharper

author says:

Each one of the series of shots was done to emphasise a particular piece of jewellery. In this case, the ring was the subject, in another shot, the necklace was the subject, and so on...there are also one or two in which the ear rings were the main subject. The dof was set in each instance to accommodate this.

the first thing I noticed was NOT the jewelry, it was the shadow on her beautiful face I like the concept of trying to make the emphasis more on the jewelry, but because it isn't sublte enough, the shadow overpowers the rest. Still a great shot though!

author says:

I appreciate you comments, but the shot was taken tis way deliberately. and as it was used by a very high profile company for their advert, I cannot complain

avatar FallingHorse

In my humble opinion - the shadow and highlight on her shoulder make the photo

ya know, I'm think that if this is in their catalog that has a black background, the shadow probably wouldn't be as noticible. Still though it is a great shot!

kyricom says:

Having made jewelry for 35 years, if I wanted a shot to emphasize one of my rings... this would be a great one. (If I wanted a shot to emphasize a girl's forehead - not so much!

author says:

Thank you Kyricom, I was rather hoping you might comment, cos I remember you said you were a jeweller in a past life...... your comment means much to me.
The shot was always about the ring, not the forehead.
