360 Jewelry View Notes
We decided to communicate different shooting orientations for 360 Jewelry Views and used a 9″ Acrylic Platform and fishing line to position this ring in a fixed, upright position.
First, to position the ring, we ran a fishing line through the center hole in the 9″ Acrylic Shooting Platform, hooked this around the ring, then ran the line back out the hole. We pulled the fishing line tight and used tape to secure the line in place. This resulted in being able to stand the ring securely in an upright position. We then placed this top over the 4″ master platform on the jewelry turntable and positioned in the center of the table.
We shot 90-frames for this 360 Jewelry View example, this process was automated in a turn, stop, snap workflow through the Shutter Stream 360 Product Photography Software. This was shot with the Canon Rebel T6s camera and 100mm (f/2.8) Macro Lens was positioned about 13″ back (from the tip of the lens to the front of the ring). We had shot using an aperture of 10 (which we felt provided enough depth) and used a shutter speed at 1/25 (ISO set to 100). An option for those who require macro photography fully in focus from front to back, consider using the Product Photography Focus Stacking shooting mode.
For the lighting, we used our LED Studio Lights with one positioned facing top down, and the other two up front on the left and right of the ring. We also used white foamboard panels on the left and right of the ring to bounce light on the subject and control reflections.
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
