    Default An ad about pearl photography

    I came across this ad and thought it might be of some use.

    Thanks for posting this. Someday, I'm going to get a set up (after I start making my own jewelry, so that is a while).

    V useful. On the shopping list.
    Now can someone tell me how to get a necklace to pose 'round' I seem to spend ages poking and pushing and tweaking and it still photographs with pearls out of the circle?

    Wendy, I use a computer disc in the centre of the strand (placed loosely as a circle) put my finger over the hole of the disc and kind of use the edge of the disc to smoth out the curves of the pearl strand circle. For smaller circles (like a figure of 8 arrangement) I use a small roll of sticky tape, fishing line, powerpro spool, whatever! Not sure if this is what the professionals would do, but it does work!
