Uh oh...I knew I shouldn't open this thread... Slinks away...

Seriously, after my photography disaster, I've never tried to take anymore pictures. I spent hours taking pictures of each stone and also in groups and none turned out well so I gave up. I did show another PSer who lives in the same town my collection and she in turn showed me her Dan Stair stuff too.

And yes, I had the wonderful privilege of meeting both Chrono AND her collection in person. Unfortunately, I did not realize until I went to download the photos just how bad they came out. LOL! I have since learned how to better use my digital camera.

Here is a link...

The spinels are there. But the photos aren''t great. I apologize for my ineptitude.

I thought you had left PS forever. Well, as bad as you think your pictures might be, trust me, mine were much worse.

It was just frustrating because I purposely picked a time when no one was home so I could do all sorts of photoshoots uninterrupted. I was also proud of the various setups and in some cases, contorted myself to get the right angle. It felt like everything was a waste.

Please don''t give up. It''s not easy to photograph gems.

Chrono,
Does your camera have a macro setting? What kind of camera and model do you have?
