Iphone Jewelry Photography: Incredible Result. Before and After retouching.

I was very skeptical about shooting jewelry with Iphone. But when Alex Koloskov showed me the test result I was impressed! More about Jewelry Photography with iPhone.

I just wanna say: It’s unbelievable!

Now, if you need your jewelry pictures for web, you don’t have to buy an expensive professional camera, even more, you don’t have to buy a camera at all…if you have Iphone of course:-)
And with some Photoshop skills you can get a great images for web sites.
Look at my examples of before and after post-production:

I’m reading the book by Betty Edwards now: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain

This book opens my eyes. Highly recommend to everyone.

My pictures become better and better. I’ll show it some day here:-) My dream is to combine retouching, painting and drawing in Photoshop. Should be fun:-)

“The purpose of your daily sketchbook drawings is not to produce finished drawings, just as the purpose of jogging is not to get somewhere.”

Post production of cosmetic brushes. Before and after retouching.




Recently we had a photo-shoot for Anisa International, Inc. a leading cosmetic brush design and manufacturing company based in Atlanta, GA.

Anisa Telwar is CEO & Founder of Anisa International. She is Creative entrepreneur who started a small distributorship in 1992 and built it into a successful cosmetic global enterprise. Opened a state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Tianjin, China in 2003. Read more about this talented inspirational woman and see the video interview at Women Are Saving The World Now blog.

It is always a big pleasure and source of inspiration to work with such passionate people like Anisa and the rest of her team.  Their products are well designed, have a great quality and true challenge for the photographer: exactly what we like:-).

The technical article on how we shoot these images can be found on our photographer’s blog: Shooting cosmetic brushes: simple tips to help dealing with chrome finish.
Basically, for the first photo we did the composition of  2 separate shoots: one with  and one without that horizontal handle with brushes. Such solution saved us some time on post-production, plus, gives one more benefit: a focus stacking. Read more how we did it.
