One of the most unusual perk of being ZDNY&Co's secretary (and owning a camera and knowing how to use it) is having my photos of our jewelry appear in trade magazines.
so far my jewelry photography have appeared in three publications:
Modern Jeweler (august 2009) - snake ring photo, bottom middle.
Lustre Who's Who in Designer Jewelry 2009 - distributed during the JCK and JCK Lux Shows in Las Vegas 2009- snake ring photo, first pic on first column
Jewelers' Circular Keystone (JCKMag) September 2009 - circles cuff bracelet, bottom photo
jewelry isnt one of my favorite subjects to take photos of - not only do they require so much light, they also reflect a bunch of stuff you dont need in your photo, like your face and camera on the jewelry itself - a difficult and painful thing to clean off your photo - and, i have to make them look expensive and luxurious.
it's all in the secretary's day's work.
