Jewellery shoot - Ashley Hilton

After completing a different shoot here are the results. Again another stylist Ashley Hilton asked if I could photographer her concept. I was willing to help as I enjoyed the experience. This time it was for a 'futuristic  jewellery brand. The light effect was from a 'video projector' - issues that I had was the angle and avoiding shadows. Although it was always going to happen if they did - I would make a feature of it. I was really pleased with the results. In the end I had to raised the projector some ten feet off the floor and angle it down for the complete coverage. I'm thinking of using this effect again for something - what I'm not sure yet.

Originally I shot at 400 ISO but changed to 3200 to allow for a better shutter speed. Many of these were shot using a tripod but the lighter ones hand held. The tripod shots approx. 1/40 and the handheld 1/100

Hi Zaz, none were required as the images demanded more of a 'concept' although I thought it would have been a good idea. I need to get in contact with Ashley again and see what feedback she had!
