360 Diamond Photography Notes
Photographing Diamonds in 360 can be challenging. There is many variables that come into play such as lighting, product movement, shooting angle and camera distance to subject to obtain ample depth of field (diamond in focus front to back).
In this example we used the Iconasys Jewelry Photography Light Box with the Silver Series Jewelry Photography Turntable to shoot this 360 Diamond image with a total of 140 frames (1 capture every 2.57 degrees). We find shooting 120 to 200 frames for a 360 diamond image is optiomal. The 360 Diamond Capture process was completely automated in a turn, stop, snap workflow – controlled via Shutter Stream 360 Photography Software. This process took about 4 minutes to complete image capture. We set the turtnable at a speed of 4 (medium speed) to eliminate any chance of the diamond moving (rolling) in between start and stop. The camera was set up to shoot at a downward angle of about 43-degrees and was set back about 10″ (25cm). We used an Aperture of 10, Shutter Speed of 1/25, ISO of 100, Set and fixed focal point through the software and set a Custom White Balance.
We added 2 pieces of black paper to the inside of the studio to help create contrast (1 piece on either side) and used a front door cover (cut out of white foam board) to help retain light in the studio and control front reflections.
After the 360 diamond capture was completed, we used the Batch Image Editing Tools to apply:
Levels: Black Point Slider = 8, White Point Slider = 236, Midtone Slider = 1.08
Sharpness: Increased to 4.6
Saturation: Desaturated this slightly using a value of -12
We then output individual frames (batch renaming/resizing) and also a 360 product view in Interactive HTML5 format with custom button color, location and added a watermark.
