I'm sure camera types help, especially with movements, but in the end, this sort of work seems to depend for its success upon the skills of the people involved. It must be one of the few areas of photography where it's difficult to hide your mistakes. I would hate to have to try to do it. I know my limitations and lack of particular training/experience too well for that!

How nice if one could do all things photographic well!

Very true, and if you don't have that particular interest or understanding inside, its even more effort to approach it. Lots of info to consider with metal colors, stone colors and facets, etc.

Paul does very nice work. I wonder if this requires a stylist, or he does on his own?

Im not sure how much movements would play into this ? at such mag you are limited on the F due to sensor and lens diffrac, and TT/S is hardly going to bring that any further. I would think a smaller sensor would give you more DOF

Hi Keith

I often visit the LuLa site. It reminds me I should get out of the studio more often.

Yes, out of the studio is always helpful.  It would be great to also hear your take on the questions and comments regarding the actual need for tilt/shift, and MF sensors, etc.

Sorry about he delay in replying. It's been a bit busy in the studio this week.

Covering a few of the topics a page or so back.
Slobodan, a tip for gluing rings. Don't use wax use hot glue. The Bosch hot glue guns with their own brand of glue stick can deliver a tiny dab of glue to the ring shank. It flicks off afterwards with your finger nail or if stubborn, a little lighter fuel loosens it. Only on the metal! never on precious stones or pearls. Ever!
Yes I shoot MF. Yes I also use focus stacking and tilt/shift and some times I use a combination of both. It depends on the shot.

Thanks for getting back Paul. good to hear.
Do you think a sensor like the D800E or A7R would be a quality option to get more DOF without giving up anything but more resolution? Any chance to test it?

Hello,

Taken with my Nikon D800E attached to a Horseman VCC adaptor with a Rodenstock 120mm Apo Rodagon lens.

Cheers

Nice Simon,
With 120, you get more DOF with it I would think. less stack. Did you compose that preshot or after? I tend to take pieces alone then composite. but this takes more shots per as I try and fill the frame. Nice how you and the D800e held the highlights on the stone...or perhaps that was handy work?

what are some limitations to the VCC? you might be limited on extension it looks? And you can attach the screw on lenses from a "standard" Sinar lens board? Maybe not as the elements behind are gonna be close to the body. I wonder if there is a 180 of this adaptable lens?  Very cool!

Hi Phil,

This image consists of 12 images which where focus stacked with Helicon Focus.

I shot all 3 rings at the same time.

I exposed for the highlights so they where safe.

The longest lens I have for the Horseman VCC is the Rodenstock 150mm Rodagon lens which is also very sharp.

This wine bottle was taken with the 150mm

Cheers

Simon,
Would you tell us what type of lighting you used for the rings?  How many?  I like the way you have a subtle shadow of the rings.

Yes, come over and light it for us...

Very nice wine bottle image. Besides the great light, that touch of creme background makes all the difference

Hello,

The ring where lit with 3 Bowens heads fitted with honeycombs. I have had made a large Perspex tube made with a removable lid made which I shoot the light trough. As an ex manufacturing jeweller in my past life the one thing I dislike is seeing the outlines of soft boxes and reflector boards.

I was using a Mamiya 645AFDII with a Leaf Aptus 75 on the Horseman VCC before the D800E and the Nikon has a bigger dynamic range than the Leaf.

Cheers

Would be awsome to have that ring image of yours side by side with A75 vs D800

Kirk, that print 'look' takes me back half a century to my pro initiation in an industrial photo-unit; 4x5 and larger give something special - there's just no getting away from it. 6x6 'blads etc., Pentax 67, nothing really looks like large sheet film.
