    SO MANY PEARLS, SO LITTLE TIME----

    Comment


    • I did not edit this picture in any way at all just a crop from my phone's camera, but I can see why you might doubt it.

      Yes it was a box, a very cheaply made adhoc cut out box (so I would never call it a true lightbox at all). You are right I had to move the box or pearl around a lot to try and focus the camera, it would focus on one color and blur the reset, though it was not sunny eventually what I got are colors very close to what I see with my naked eyes. Even without bright sun light Im certain the metal planters around me reflected day light into my box, still it is a very colorful pearl on its own.

I found my Olympus exaggerate the blue color (good for scenery though) and my Fuji exaggerates the yellow. I don't like to edit my pearl pix except crop here and there or resize. When I take pix of pearls, I pick the best angle to show all the colors, this is not an easy job though.
      No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

      • Wow that is nice. I swear they look like balls of candy! perfectly round is nice, but something about the colors caught on the baroque and semi baroque pearls. The one pic I posted is the first non black/tahitian pearl that I've literally coveted, just because of the colors.

        • BPDDC, no I didn't say I doubt that you posted an unedited pix. I was just telling you what I do with my pix. My most reliable makeshift background or lightbox is just a plastic box from take away food. Bon, pearls photography interests me much.Click image for larger version

          • Then my apologies I misunderstood.
            Though I am not a photographer (I much prefer looking at gems under a microscope its like looking into another galaxy) one of my favorite pearl photos is of an Octo that our Sheri made for me, it is almost perfectly blended into the foliage like camo, with my old camera phone it was a true accomplishment and probably the only picture of pearls I am quite proud of enough to share here. I made my "lightbox" quite on the fly for some styling work so long ago now. I saw the professional boxes and thought too much money for something I would rarely use. I would never have thought to use a take out container thats brilliant.

            Back to metallic pearls I am glad everyone has shared their stories and pics about Kong Pearls & Yunlan, she really is a very nice person. All those choices not sure how any of you make decisions...

              listen, i don't even have a cell phone..i refuse to
              so you're doing better then me

                    • All of the pearls are winners in my opinion! I am really impressed with the quality of what everyone here has received.

                            • Thanks everyone. I am eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Kong pearl also have a similar metallic golden lot which I am seeing everyday..... My wallet is so not very happy with me.

                              • I am already looking at more possibilities, too. Hopefully you all beat me to the ones I'm eyeing and I can't be tempted anymore!
