How to Create 360 Jewelry Spin Photography Example
360 Jewelry Spin Images are a series of still images, captured at even intervals over a 360 rotation (ex. every 10 degrees for a total of 36 frames) then composed into a ‘player’ type file that will display each image for a fraction of a second to create the look of a rotating 360 view. Shooting, editing and creating 360 jewelry spins can be time consuming and will require specialized knowledge, equipment and software. Iconasys develops automated, software-controlled solutions for jewelry photography that streamline the 360 spin image process.
We shot this faux gold ring using the LumiCube 360 Jewelry Photography Light Box. We captured a total of 72 frames over the 360 rotation (a higher frame counts is optimal for 360 jewelry spins) and the entire process took only about 6 minutes. This includes:
Automated 360 Image Capture: The software controls the turntable and camera to work in unison – capturing images in a turn, sto, snap workflow (image capture time for 72 frames ~ 2 minutes 30 seconds)
Image Editing: The software includes a powerful image editing suite that includes background removal, white background, image enhancement, color correction and image manipulation tools. Editing adjustments were made on a single image then applied to the entire 360 image set in a single click
Composing 360 Product View: Users have multiple options for 360 spin image output formats – all of which can be completely customized. We created an HTML5 animation in this example, choose button color, location, spin direction, level of interactivity and more.
Lighting settings can be adjusted in the LumiCube 360 Light Box to achieve optimal settings for achieving a true gold color. The lighting settings used were:
Back Lighting: Full Intensity
Top Left Lighting: ~10% Intensity
Top Right Lighting: ~10% Intensity
Cold Lighting: Off
Neutral Lighting: Off
Warm Lighting: On
The camera used to photograph this was the Canon EOS M50 camera with Canon 100mm Macro Lens. We set the camera back about 26″ from the ring as to achieve an ample depth of field. The camera settings used in this 360 Jewelry Spin Image example were set as follows:
Shutter Speed: 1/80
White Balance: Color Temperature (set to 5200K)
Lens Focus Mode: AF (however overridden by the software to use a single, manually set focal point)
After lighting and camera had been optimized, the front doors on the LumiCube 360 Light Box were partially closed – leaving a 2″ gap to shoot through. We then hit start and the software controlled the 360 spin image creation process.
