This is what I’ve done tabletop photography during my employment life in Htoo Group of Companies. This is my very first project to shoot with strobe lighting for jewelry. According to the study from senior photographers and online, product photography is very difficult. Because it doesn’t have action, emotion and every perspective is hard to deal for photographer. The colors must be corrected, green is green, yellow is yellow, blue is blue. Because it is no trick on the audience. For me, I’ve struggle a lot a lot for this during my shooting and post processing.
This is behind the scene of how to setup and how I shoot these photos, one of my friend took photo of me. It’s really easy setup. Two strobe lighting with the backdrop canvas and used some staffs to display more drama.
I took this photo for my collogue makeup artist Mayzabae Nyo, dress design by Kyal Thazin Wedding Dress and decorated by Shwe Nan Myint. Model is my one and only Michelle.
We used two light source with strobe lighting system and the brand is Photix. See below diagram how we make the lighting pop out. We used only one main light and one fill light.
Post processing is my favourite part of photography steps. I don’t really like the classic gold color, it looks too shine in my eyes. So, I make selective color tool to remove it and change hue a bit without effect on model’s skin tone.
This photo was taken during the trip to Nepal around 2014. This is the early morning time and weather is so stunning. I love to shoot the nature’s beauty, landscape. If I can spare time, or if I have a lot of money, I will do travel a lot and took more photos.
