In-studio shot where we were testing creative backgrounds. Bought a real street light, put it there, added some fabric, then lighting...
Was fun - especially with such a beautiful model!

This is the first result of my try to do 360° rotation video for jewelry. Very interesting process with tons of issues to overcome (the main is dust).
Still super exited to work on this and going to introduce the whole thing during the upcoming workshop ( more here: https://goo.gl/gIrpoR)
+Daniel Schweinert did an amazing job on a post-production side for this video - Thank you Daniel! Its a real magic:-)

This is an interesting (at least for me:-) shot we did for one of our clients Yael Designs. We were doing a 360-rotation video footage, and then stopped a platform and I took few shots using the same lighting, etc.
This is one of them - came out pretty nice, with LED continuous lighting and "video setup".
Moonstone pink spinels and diamonds in 18k white gold.
