GEM + MINERAL PHOTOGRAPHY


My friend Andree always emails me the bestest photo resources and photography inspiration links.  I don't know how she is able to sleuth such goodness from the sea of goodness out there, but she is always able to edit, refine and send something that I will love.  Andree turned me on to The Photo Argus, which I quickly signed up for, the other day they sent me an email with Warren Krupsaw's Gem + Mineral photographs, I loved how they look like modern art.  I think the concept is so original and creative. In Mr. Krupsaw's article he generously shares with the reader how they can go about shooting their own Gem + Mineral photo's.  I have my own little collection of gems at my studio and am eager to give this a try.  If you are looking for some photo inspiration I highly recommend signing up for the Photo Arugus newsletter, there's always a small photo treasure to be mined on their site.

1. I love your use of the watercolor brushstroke. Gorgeous!

2. I have an amethyst cluster that I have been trying to capture for months now, but every picture I take looks terrible. What a perfect resource!

Thank you Miss Jules! You know what else would be cool? Your Salt Rock! If you have a point and shoot it probably has a pretty good macro capability you can try it. I don't have a macro lens (I may rent one from borrow lenses.com) I can't wait to see your beautiful results.

Thanks for sharing this site- I just signed up!

Also, I haven't tried borrow lenses but Bel-Air Camera is local and has a pretty nice rental dept.

Miss Alex!

Borrow Lenses is so inexpensive AND they don't put a million dollar hold on your credit card;) Oh and you can pick up the lenses in Woodland Hills if you can't wait. So going to rent a tilt shift and macro soon!
