|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|As a part time business, my wife makes jewelry out of various materials, mostly beads. This bracelet is made primarily of lampwork beads. Popularized in Murano, Italy, in the 1300s, lampwork beads are made from manipulating molten glass with tools, gravity or blowing into the end of the glass tube. Many intricate shapes and colors can be achieved and it's my job to photograph the finished pieces for marketing purposes, either online or in brochures.|
I've found that a light tent is essential for this type of photography, although I actually didn't use one for this shot. DOF is also critical and the quality of the lens becomes very apparent in this type of work. The 18-55mm kit lens that came with the 300D is way too "soft" and I usually use a 50mm fixed lens. One of these days, I'll spring for a macro lens.
Square crop, adjust levels, sharpen.
