[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My wife ("lilycat" here on TL) has started making jewelry and I've become intrigued with how to photograph it properly.

For this photo I used a light tent as well as an illuminated light board that project light upward through the translucent glass beads, especially the main pendant.

I would really appreciate some constructive critiques as we have an eye toward marketing her work and if I can get take at least some passable shots, I'll use them in a website or printed brochure.

Wow, I like the color combination with the BG! Looks very professional! I think you have the right idea here with the necklace coming in at this angle. I'd probably keep the space on the bottom at a minimum and by cropping that out would bring the necklace in even closer to the viewer. I think you could have given the viewer just one more square stone on the right side for a little bit of balance. I really love the quality of the image and the beauty of the necklace itself (Beautiful work lilycat). I am sure it will be a big hit!

Hi Robert,
This is really good work,
For me, there is perhaps a diffuse light source missing from the equation. I seem to feel a placement of one just on top off to the side at a low POV to accentuate the texture of the design on the actual pendant may be helpful.
Not sure though, maybe i'm wrong about that.
I like the look of the Jewelry very much.
