Photographing jewelry (finalizing)

Recently I posted about my first trial to set up a brochure for Yvonne’s jewelry business. In the meantime I’ve been working on it on an almost daily basis and at the end this labor is bearing some fruit (she is giving her approving nods… 🙂 ).

Here two pictures to start with. This weekend I’ll make some more based on the same basic layout.

Dhunga Earthworks Jewelry 'Made in Stanford'

This is just a first trial; more Trial & Error to follow.

Yvonne developed a way of binding earth particles in a natural environmental way. Combined with Sterling Silver and Swarovsky gems Yvonne creates jewelry under the ‘brand’ Dhunga Earthworks. And it’s selling (wholesale and retail via The Little Gem in Hermanus). Dhunga is Nepalese for Rock.

In due time she wants to market the jewelry via selected outlets on a global scale. But first she is busy with the creation of a new line of bracelets and necklaces. Prices of the different items vary from USA 50.00 to USD 300.00.

Packaging is ‘green’ and made of cotton and corrugated cardboard.

Pictures from the square yard 2: Store Cafe; Been Shopping

The Dutch writer Simon Carmiggelt made a living by observing from his ‘own’ chair and table on a terrace in Amsterdam. He wrote about objects he saw, about people and interaction between them, the sky, the weather and so on. And his stories never became boring; he could even write five or six pages about lightning a sigaret; between taking a match and the first inhale of smoke…

I became inspired by this when sitting on two terraces; one in Somerset-West (Store Cafe) and at the terrace of Thandi in Elgin. I made a selection of 20 images (10 of each venue). Each serie I begin the  gate and you may make your own story. My story is in each individual picture.

To provide this serie with an own signature I added HDR-toning to each picture.
