Everyone! I can share the "special secret project," at last!!
A little while ago (a few weeks), I got in touch with some folks at PP mostly hypothetically saying "I know PP is focused on awesome quality for affordable pearls, but just for curiosity's sake... What could PP do vs (the well known high end pearl company) given the truly same budget...?"
And, as the VIP page said (check it out if you haven't yet!), the kind folks at PP told me about a couple of special strands they had on hand. We got to chatting, and the end result was that I had the privilege of making a couple of photos for the VIP page of these strands.
Even my own photos don't really do justice compared to seeing them in person (which I can say I have!), and they are truly lovely.
I am going to make a "blog style" more "BTS" post about this project soon, for those who are interested in the thought process and what goes into doing these types of shots, but in the meantime, please enjoy a couple more final images (there were lots!):
