Dancing diamonds in 360 degrees view with a video clip

All diamond photography rules I decribed in Photography of Diamonds (get down to basics). Now let’s spin it!


I used Canon 70D with 100 mm macro lens with teleconverter Kenko 1.4X and MODEVid premium software for Photo Composer

The basic position of diamond should be like on the picture – a bit on 3:00 AM 😉 because we want diamond to spin with it’s front table smoothly, not just start from that position. Also we want our customers to see this priority point when they are prepared for it and fully focused.

Let’s start video recording (Click to run animation program). We can name the video and describe diamond 5 C or price.

The video has been named video_oryginal.mov, in next step we will see video creator interface with  Frame for extraction feature – 90 is a perfect choice. We can also edit all frames here and choose the video output format. Software beside original video is always saving transfer/upload friendly comperessed file (10% of the original one) which is very convenient for all sharing purposes: Whatsup, Facebook, Instagram etc.
