360 Necklace Photography Notes
We used a black background (24×36″ photography lighting reflector) which provided contrast between the subject (necklace) and the background to really make this pop. The unedited result background was slightly off black, so we used the editing tools inside the Shutter Stream 360 Software to batch apply (in one click):
Levels: Dragged the Left (black) reference point to 13
Sharpness: Increased by 2.8
Using the 360 Jewelry Photography Turntable and 360 Jewelry Hanging Kit, we used a rotation speed of 3 and set a pre-capture delay of 2 seconds (to eliminate the possibility of object movement between turntable start and stop).
For suspending the turntable, we used 2X 31″ tall Sawhorses, and a white 20 x 30″ white foamboard sheet which we cut a 2″ diameter hole in the center (for turntable stem). Last, we used two white foamboard sheets to help eliminate side reflections.
