Does anyone have a sure fire method for photographing individual
I have been urged to start selling some of the stones I have been
collecting and put them on my web site. I saw several shots in
Colored Stone magazine that I would like to duplicate, but have tried
various setups and cannot seem to capture the 'sparkle' I see when
not looking through the lens. I have tried backlighting, front
lighting, putting them in cutouts, and nothing satisfies me.
Robert Lowe was here and let me photograph some of his high quality
stones. With all my gear and all my experience, I could not
duplicate the beauty of some of his imperial topaz and aquamarine and
kunzite. I took the pictures and will post them on my web later in
the week, but the shots don't do the stones justice.
Love and God Bless
