Jewellery photography workshop in Bangkok - teaching Tong

I have been doing a series of educational workshops on product photography while in Bangkok. 

Yesterday it was flat lay shooting of bags, and today I've been teaching Tong, who has a prestige jewellery business. Tong wanted to learn how to shoot jewellery for his family business.

We looked at using a light tent to capture a diamond necklace on black, and I encouraged him to take the shot with his new Olympus Macro lens. We had purchased the light tent the day before at MBK shopping centre, and I was really impressed with it - I will definitely buy one myself.

 I ran through file management and outputting jpegs optimised for web as well.

Handbags for Marchi Leather

I shot some handcrafted bags for Marchi Leather in Bangkok late last year. Pictured right is the Cubit. I was reminded of these while giving a Bangkok workshop today on shooting products, and used this image as an example of the many stages of the process in product photography, and issues around getting clean white backgrounds.
