Our high resolution photos are taken with lots of light and there is dust and a few scratches and blemishes that shouldn't be visible. However, it is handcrafted unique jewellery and therefore some irregularities should stay. We love our sharp foreground and blurred background areas as it is all taken with a makro lens.
Most retouchers are not up to the job as the pictures look fake, like a computer model or cut out. If you would like to work long term with us, I will send you three examples to retouch with before and after examples. At the beginning we would like to do 20 photos, but we do have about 100 lined up already.
You have to be able to work with Raw CR2 files and deliver tiff files back onto our dropbox or server. Additional white or black background may be added in some cases in order to center the item.
I will also have photos to merge, where one photo shows an item in a soft lighting and the other has a hard reflective spot shining onto a gemstone. The soft light onto reflective surfaces is better for them and the light is better for the sparkling of a gemstone.
There will be more photos, after the initial job when we're satisfied.
They can be delivered one by one and don't have to be made in one go.
Similarly, we may send you 2-10 images regularly to do as a recurring job.
IMG_8203 and IMG_8203-Edit is before and after on ear studs that I have done recently. Not too much done, and the blurred back areas not cut out. Dust and some scratches removed or alleviated.
Test photos to do for you, if you're interested to be part of this.
IMG_8193 is a black one, that will need a reflection on the bottom and removal of the stand.
IMG_8020 is a white one. Pure white is ideal, but not as important as better visibility and a slight reflection.
IMG_7560 is a model shoot that needs the face cleaning and whatever you mean could be done.
