Photography for Jewelers


This class is not currently scheduled.  For more info/updates, please join our mailing list!

Learn to take professional quality photos of your jewelry without the costly professional studio set up using just an iphone, ipad or other PDA. Jewelry, whether a ring or earrings, introduces unique photographic challenges: it’s small, requiring careful focus and composition, and it’s usually shiny, requiring attention to detail in lighting. We will teach you how to utilize common objects and light sources to showcase your jewelry in the best possible way. In this course, photographer Nicholas Papadakis details the creative and technical decisions involved in making jewelry look its best. The course begins with an overview of backgrounds and lighting techniques and follows through with hands-on photography of your jewelry. A handout will be provided listing basic materials and techniques for future reference.
