    My wife has been making Jewelry lately so I of course said I would photograph it for her ;)

    Let me know what you think....Is the background too much?

    Personally , I'd use a satin background to go with the necklace. Everything else is nice and smooth so the fur just doesn't really fit IMHO.

    I think I agree...I tried it on some vinyl and did not like it. We didn't have any satin around but I did have that red blanket.

    I'd like to see a deeper DOF...with this composition anyway.
    I don't necessarily mind that only the front of the necklace is in focus...but I don't like that it's right at the bottom of the frame.

    Also, with the way the ribbon crosses and is white on red, that's where my eye wants to look, I think the angle & positioning could be improved so that the pearls are more prevalent.

    Good points Mike. I think this calls for a re-shoot. Thank you for your comments.

    I think you should use a silk/satin... and a black.. or maybe a light..like baby powder pink. something subtle. That red furs crazy! lol

    I do. it takes away from the subject... but maybe if u want red, go with something with less of a "wow" factor. :) or a different material?

    I like the colors, but it looks like you have more light toward the back than the front.

    I like the fur. Satin, silk black plexi and vinyl is the normal. Way to look outside the box! I do agree that the composition is off. The cross creates a visual bullseye. Just uncross. then your bright lighting is at top. Just feather the light so the front is brighter than the back. That will help keep your eye in the front on the main jewelry.

    I don't care for the fur texture with the pearls. Have you considered going to your local Home Depot and getting a piece of tile? I think the reflective nature would go well with the pearls. They are many colors and patterns to play with.

    I'm trying to light this glass skull (unsucessfully so far :meh:), but I light the reflection.

    Bazooka, I agree with you on the lighting. I actually got the opposite of what I was going for.....I hate to admit it, but I think I uploaded the wrong image. :meh:
