Firstlight Studios have been producing commercial shots for over 10 years. Primarily the focus has been on a particular market, natural crystals and minerals.
There are many challenges involved when photographing these items and the same techniques apply to jewelry, watches and anything shiny!
We have learnt by applying many different techniques and equipment and have now branched out into commerical photography specialising in products and packshots.
Several books relating to Crystal Healing have been published and I was very honored to be asked to do the photography for these. It took a lot of hardwork getting the absolute perfect lighting conditions to enable the photographs to be acceptable to the publishers.
The crystal photograph to the right was my very first venture into commercial photography - this was actually taken on a 1.3 megapixel Nikon Coolpix and was used as a CD cover.
My equipment has advanced a lot since then and I now have a dedicated product studio with high quality studio lighting and top of the range Canon cameras and lenses.
