    Nice work as usual, man.

    How many actual pieces do you have to photograph?

    :cool:

    OT Discount :x:


    a CP or black foam core at the top might reduce the reflection on the tops if that bothers you.

    That Dean Collins video set I mentioned has a great tutorial on photographing a watch with a similar problem

    Looks nice man. First item works more for me as you see more detail. On my macbook the second seems like I lose some detail on the sides.

    Like Mojito said, I'd go with a CP to reduce the glare.

    Thanks. I used a CPL and it didn't appear to really do much, oh well, they don't have to be perfect anyway. if you are interested, these are mystic topaz .925 silver pendants.

    i set up a soft box on the left and overhead of the jewelry, using two flashes in each soft box. there was no editing done in LR or photoshop, just cropping.

    you might try only side lighting or putting some black cardboard over the center of the object on the softbox, should help minimize reflections
