Eberhard Schuy takes us through the problems one encounters when small items that shine and reflect light like jewelry, need to be photographed.

Turning the tables literally on the subject we learn how to use the properties of the object to resolve the problems. By using the reflections we learn how to control what is reflected.

A few lighting techniques add panache to our setup. Mixing continuous reflectors and conical tubes together with various matte services any dark anomalies are easily filled with tone modulation to give the subjects just the right balance of brilliance and glamor.

And just when you think you're done he pulls out one more neat little trick to give the shot that final Pizazz that only experience and skill can bring to the result.
