It goes without saying that I like photographing jewellery and the creativity that accompanies it. I like how you can play around with composition, movement, and model positions. How I posture and guide my models is one of the most frequent questions I get. To get such amazing images, it’s critical for a photographer to understand what positions work best and what angles work best for their subject and main focal areas.

I’ll go into detail in this piece on how I posture my models for a jewellery-focused photo session, but you can use these same poses for any fashion or lifestyle project. I hope it provides you with some ideas and inspiration for your next photo session!

Never undervalue your arms!

In a picture, you may add form and “movement” by having your model raise their arms over their heads or beside their faces. Request that your model raise an arm over their head or along the side of their face. This will set you up for a spectacular photo, but it’s also a terrific method to observe a model’s movement, which will vary depending on the model you work with. Because you can play about with shadows and light leaks, I really like utilising this approach with direct and backlighting light.

Apply props

Adding props is another excellent technique to ensure that you’re getting close-up pictures, which are crucial when photographing jewels, as well as including a little of lifestyle. Something that goes very nicely with jewellery and many other product photos is flowers. It enhances elegance and beauty without drawing attention away from your primary focal point. Invite your model to engage with the prop – in this example, the flowers. I had the model touch the petals and hold the bouquet over her shoulder and head. You may also try asking your model to reach for the flowers or hold them closer to their face as you hold the flowers closer to your lens.

Bring those hands to!

Try contrasting standing and laying down.

Experiment with every single picture session. Only if you explore and attempt various postures on your subjects can you as a photographer learn and advance. The majority of models are open to trying new things and having fun. I wanted to do something different for this session, so I had my model lie down. This not only altered the composition but also worked really well for getting good pictures of the jewellery. First, have your model lie down. Then, arrange their hair so that it falls to one side and is not straggling. Finally, add more props and arrange the jewellery so that it is ideally positioned for the photo.

The speaker’s comments had a genuine passion and encouragement that permeated the discourse, as if they were a warm invitation to explore the creative worlds together. With a tone full of infectious enthusiasm for the craft of creation, they shouted, “I hope you were somewhat inspired by these few pointers and suggestions!” It was assumed that creativity had no boundaries and that exchanging ideas opened doors to countless opportunities. Even if the speaker’s request couldn’t be fulfilled digitally, it was stated with a charming sincerity. Then, with an undercurrent of excitement to watch the magic captured behind a camera, they said, “Remember to send me pictures from any shootings you undertake; I always like seeing them!” These words revealed a deep love of visual storytelling, a willingness to participate in the creative process, and an unrelenting curiosity about the world from other people’s perspectives. They seemed to be reaching out and beckoning the listener to partake in the delight of preserving moments, even in the absence of a physical world where these kinds of interactions might take place.
