here i am giving important steps to ornamental photography.

photographing ornaments

Ornaments have gold, glittering crystals etc. photographer should mainly give importance to direction and light intensity .The requirement is that you should have a camera with manual settings and macro arrangement.You need not have to buy or take photo of your own ornament. you can take it in a gold smith shop, but remember you have to take his permission!

light and dirction

The the important steps to be followed are:
• Select suitable ornament , that means, the size and material of the ornament.
• Mount it on a suitable support or background.
• The background color should be contrast to the ornament crystal color.
• Set the camera to macro mode.
• Set the aperture to f4 to make background behind the support blur.
• Set the shutter speed to 1/125 or 1/250 sec.
• Use bulb light and not flash light.
• Direction of the light should be adjusted to get maximum glittering effect.
• Take several photos by varying zoom, direction of light and different ornaments.
• Save the photos and if required edit.
