I like photographing small things and getting the bling look. Wish it was the real thing. That's the beauty of photography. You can hardly tell the difference..

Happy New Year to all.

p.s. I added jewelry sparkles in Photoshop (topaz lights) to the earrings and bracelet. I hope subtly. There is a fine line to too subtle where it does show and too much. No matter how much I use a tripod or how much I light well, I can rarely, if ever, get the natural sparkles even though I can see it with naked eye. Anyone else?

www.topazlabs.com Product that becomes a filter in Photoshop. I have the lights and I have the b/w. Even though I am pretty adept in b/w, there are filters in there that it would take forever to do. Lights are invaluable if you are photographing jewelry or night or want special effects. Worth it. I always do the adjustments on a layer though so as not to effect the original permanently. Good luck.
