Photographing jewelry gives you plenty of creative options, but it doesn’t come without challenges. In this video from B&H, you’ll see plenty of useful tips for getting the best from your photos of rings and other jewelry. No matter if you shoot engagement and wedding photos or photograph jewelry for e-commerce, these tips will help you tackle the challenges and come up with creative setups.
Looking for an innovative way to show off your latest and greatest photos? Try experimenting with personalized jewelry using pictures from your most memorable vacation or outing.
Think: dramatic landscapes, charming landmarks, pets and animals, signage from a great restaurant, or even that one family portrait where everyone miraculously has their eyes open.
For this tutorial, I’m using a photo of an African spotted eagle owl, taken during a recent visit to a raptor sanctuary, along with a picture of a lighthouse, a dead tree on the beach where I live, and a shot of my friend surfing from our last camping trip. Each piece is unique and the possibilities are endless!
Most craft supply stores carry various bezel blanks for resin. For this project, I chose blank pendant and ring shapes, but you can also find bracelet, earring and brooch blanks. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, check out Etsy for some unique shape and size options.
To create these eye-catching charms, photos are fit into the blank bezel and covered with resin. These stunning, personalized pendants make excellent gifts and keepsakes. Impress your friends, and feel great about wearing such a fond memory so close to your heart.
