Lesson 403, Jewelry - Some Easy Hints
In the previous post you see the fourth and loose "lamp" clipped to the tripod with a piece of duffusion material attached in the shape of a triangle, but here it's "down and dirty" with aluminum foil wrapped (carefully) around it and the old man trying to get the subject to give up some "sparkles".
In the third right photo, an easy and cheap way to get the tripod out and over the jewelry - simply extend one tripod leg and use a soft weight from your nearest running or aerobic training supply to create a counter weight on the forward leaning camera and tripod. Or tape a one pint or one liter water bottle to one extended leg. ARROW is pointing at the "training" weight bag.
