These are the supplies from your Loose Diamond Kit, available with the PackshotMacro DIS photo studio, needed for this tutorial:
1- 6 mirror matrixes (1 for back light panel, 2 for front doors, 2 for side doors, and 1 for front center
2- 2 black square matrixes (for covering the bottom of side doors matrixes)
3- Metal turntable
4- 2 black turntable plate (with different diameter center holes)
5- Lens loop
6- Loop platform
On the software interface, set 360° as your shooting mode. Then, click on “turntable controls” and turn “ON” the suction mode. Next, go to “options”, then “workflow” and select the “apply QuickShot mode” box.
Now your software and studio are configured, it’s time to place your diamond.
Make sure to well clean your diamond before placing it in the studio. Use a thread free selvyt/microfiber cloth or a steam cleaner. Then, using the tweezer, bring the diamond to the center of the black turntable’s plate. Place it in the little hole so the air suction is securely holding it in place.
Important: close all the doors of the studios and turn off the lights in your place if possible. Diamonds are sensitive to outdoor lights.
Adjust the camera’s angle to the center of the diamond’s table. Note that the camera’s angle will depend on your diamond’s pavilion angle. For a perfect cut diamond, the best angle will be at 50°. We highly recommend purchasing the MacroStand to combine with your PackshotMacro DIS. It will help with repeatability and save you a lot of time in centering the diamond.
Use this image as a guide for diamonds focusing areas according to your diamond’s shape:
For your camera settings, select an aperture value between 13 and 16 for a completely sharp 360° view and maintain a low value for the ISO. Adjust the shutter speed according to the background you desire (clear or dark). In this tutorial, we chose 16 for aperture, 1/13 for shutter speed and 200 for ISO.
Next, turn off all the lights in the studio, except the “top light” that has to be set between 60% to 100%.
To improve the lighting and make the diamonds cuts and arrows more homogeneous and outlined: adjust the lens loop by moving it right, left, back or forward.
Before creating your 360° fire view, choose 360 as the spin range and 90 (recommended) for the number of images. Keep the turntable speed as normal or set it to high for a faster process then press “snap”.
