360 Jewelry Images Notes
Shooting 360 Jewelry Images can be challenging. There is many variables to consider when shooting small, lightweight and reflective items in 360. The Iconasys Jewelry Imaging Lightbox and Turntable set up is designed to enable users of any skill level to create professional grade 360 Jewelry Images in just minutes!
For this 360 jewelry example, we shot 72 frames (1 capture every 5-degrees). We had simply placed 360 Jewelry Imaging Turntable inside the Light Box – which had all lights on set to full power (including LED Sparkle Light on). We had used a piece of white foam board to cover up the front door (cut a hole out in the middle which the camera shot through). This helped retain light in the studio & maintain consistent reflections as the jewelry rotated.
This 360 Jewelry Image example was shot using the Canon Rebel T5 camera and 100mm (f/2.8) Macro Lens which was positioned about 13″ back (from the tip of the lens to the front of the ring). By placing our camera far back, and when using an Aperture value of 13 (shutter speed at 1/25 & ISO set to 100), we were able to get what we felt as ample depth of field. An option for those who require macro photography fully in focus from front to back, consider using the 360 Focus Stacking shooting mode in the Shutter Stream 360 Software.
After capture, we used the Batch Editing tools to edit the set of images (in 1 click – apply to all). 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
