[CD] Jewelry Photography made Easy


#1

It looks like there is some interest in learning more about
professional quality jewelry photography.

I already have a very entry-level CD (Jewelry Photography made Easy)
that covers the choosing and operation of a D-SLR, along with proper
lighting and post-processing fundamentals. Some of you here own
that.

I will start working on a more advanced guide covering camera
technique, lighting alternatives with samples, and post-processing
for the web or digital publication, along with proper storage
formats. Anything else?

I think it would be interesting to post the various small sections
as they are written to orchid, for response and review. Over time,
the whole thing could get posted here, but I don’t think we could
adequatley demonstrate the imagery here. Comments?

I guess maybe I could create a web site dedicated to the discussion
of the work as it goes along…that should be a pretty good
educational tool and would allow for others to contribute, disagree,
etc.

Right now, I am extremely busy selling the small USB cameras for
repair take-in and web shots, but as that smooths out, I should have
some time.

Most of us are prepared to eat this up with a spoon…

The format that perfectly suits your needs here is a blog. You can
get set up in 5 minutes or less, for free, and it is designed to
allow comments, changes, additions, etc. My own blog is on Blogspot
(http://noelyovovich.blogspot.com) and it couldn’t be easier. You can
include pictures, no problem.

Wayne,

that sounds like a great idea. there have been so many postings on
Orchid regarding photography and to put it all together plus
additional info sounds terrific.

Go for it when you have the time.

That is an excellent suggestion. It is a wonderful format.

I would add that I recommend using Word Press and self-hosting your
blog.
