360 Product View Notes

When shooting 360 jewelry photography, we suggested using a higher frame count / 360 rotation. This example was shot using a total of 90 frames (that is 1 capture every 4 degrees). We had shot this 360 jewelry example using the 360 Jewelry Photography Turntable which was placed inside of the Jewelry Photography Lightbox. We did not do any dimming on the lights inside the Lightbox and also used the LED Strip light in the on position. Last, we used a piece of white foam board that we cut a hole out in the middle. This acted as a front door and helped retain light in the studio & minimize reflections from the front door opening.

Our camera was positioned ~15″ back from the ring and we used an aperture of 13 with a shutter speed at 1/25 (ISO set to 100). We were able to get ample depth of filed (however for a fully in focus rung, we could have used the Focus Stacking capture method.

This ring posed a bit of a challenge as it would wobble in between turntable start and stop when operating at the fastest turntable speed setting. To compensate for this when shooting, we used a turntable rotation value of 4 and set a pre-capture delay of 1 second to ensure we wouldn’t capture any movement in the ring caused by turntable start/stop (torque). Total capture time for 90 frames was about 3 minutes (completely automated through software in turn, stop, snap workflow).

 

 

Last, we used the Shutter Stream 360 Product Photography Software Editing tools to batch edit the set of images. Edits included:

White Point Color Picker: To adjust off white background to pure white
Sharpness: To enhance image quality
Levels: Adjusted Dark and Mid-tones to add contrast and make the silver pop
