A few shots from my recent work.

Jewelry series for a local jeweler. The goal was to show all the artistry of the handcrafted pieces. Such results were normally achieved with large cameras such as a Sinar and with shifting and tilting of the the lens and the picture plane. I used a full frame DSLR instead, with focus stacking technique. Some of the pictures were made with over 20 pictures and combined to a single shot with almost endless DOF. Most of the gems in the masterpieces are Sapphires from Tanzania and they not perfect in the terms of cleanness and show some flaws, such as small cracks or inclusions. This is not an issue. It is a sign, that this gems were not treated with high temperatures, as it is common for crystal clear Sapphires. They represent a more archaic and rare style of jewelry.

My «Jewelry» pictures were shot with NIKON D3 and NIKON D800 DSLRs and  a NIKKOR AF-S VR 105mm Micro lens, under studio conditions. All compositings and the fine tuning has been made in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Apple Aperture 3. The focus-stacking has been done with Helicon Remote and Helicon Focus software.

Enjoy, Alfredo Briccola
