jewelry photo retouching
In my opinion it's more about a different taste in different parts of the world. Even though you process these pictures nicely, as you said it yourself - it's a little fake. Some people like that, some prefer a more natural look. As long as you can find a customer for what you're doing, you can (and should!!) do whatever you like
For major advertising in store displays they do pay attention. But for catalogs they don't want to spend so much. More production line type of work than precision work. I think it's more the custom jewelry makers are the ones who want the best pictures. But of course have the lower budgets as well. And many try to take their own pictures. The one of the last 2 cameras I sold used, went to a custom jeweler. So she could try and take her own pictures. The other went to a realtor who wanted to take better pictures of houses than just his cell phone.
Yeah got your point.
What methods do you use to get the pure white backgrounds ?
beutiful shots. Very nice work indeed!
Thanks, I have been playing around with different masking techniques for jewelry.
