Tips for Photographing Shiny Things

Mother and Daughter engagement ringsHere are a few very quick tips and things to think about if you are photographing something shiny.

  • Clean it – use the “appropriate cleaner” – trust me you will thank me later.
  • Wear gloves – so you have spent precious time cleaning it, you don’t want to get finger prints on it.
  • Shiny things will have reflections on their surfaces, so be aware of what you can see in your image.
  • Keep a lint free cloth to hand – dont use anything that is fluffy or may scratch the surface of your subject.I am a commercial product photographer based in East Sussex who is passionate about photographing shiny things from jewellery, to glass, Liquids to food.
