VIDEO TUTORIAL

STEP-BY STEP:

1.  NATURAL LIGHT

Choose a place close to the window with the natural light. The image colours will look more natural and your jewellery stand out better.

2. TRIPOD

Use tripod to get sharper pictures and get consistency in the images.

3. CAMERA + LENS

Make your camera ready. Clean the lens, charge batteries, make sure you got enough memory space in your SD card. If you got Canon DSLR camera, I recommend using Canon 50mm prime lens. It’s sharp and gives a lovely blur in the background helping the jewellery to stand out.

4. LEARN SETTINGS

Try to learn the main settings of your camera (read the manual!). It’s best to use Manual settings or Aperture Priority (AV). Try to not overexpose the images as you’ll lose some details.

5. BACKGROUND

Choose a couple of textured card paper. A4 (regular) size paper should be enough. Use pastel colours or bright solid colours depending on your style and branding.

6. PROPS

Choose few props for your photo shoot. Jewellery displays, interesting items like marble tiles (you can get them at the tile, bathroom shops, B&Q). For additional decorations use gems and beads.

7. TAKE FEW SHOTS

Take few photos of the same item from different angle. Set up the scene on the cardboard paper and then turn it around for different view without moving the tripod.

8. DIFFERENT LIGHT

Like this you’ll get different lighting as well. It will be front, back or side light. Side light is great to emphasise the details creating a shadow. Back light gives lovely catchlights on the gemstones and shinny metals. Find what works best for you.

9. PLANTS

Introduce plants and photograph from the top for the flat images. These shots are great for Instagram, Pinterest and all social media posts. They are eye catching and look gorgeous.

LIFE SAVING TIP

To layout the chain use something round like a glass.

Rasa Mombeini Makeover photo session Swansea 3Ilona Blazaitiene 2017-10RASAFamily photography Swansea Rasa Mombeini

It’s that time of year when the word ‘Christmas’ is back in the air. My children yesterday put on the Christmas songs and cinnamon smell candles! It’s totally in the air.

And it’s that time of the year when you have to think about the tradition of taking your family pictures  every year. So you can record how children are growing and everyone are changing.

If you are planning to come to me for a family photo shoot for Christmas gifts than it’s the best time to book your space as the photo shoots are limited and you definitely don’t want to leave it for the last minute.

Family photos are great as framed portraits to give to the grandparents and greeting cards to send to all your relatives and friends, and have a beautiful piece of art on your wall.  Just as a reminder for children and yourself that you always belong here, in this FAMILY, whatever happens.
