Hearts and Arrows view refers to diamonds that have been cut to a very high level of three-dimensional symmetry, as well known as optimal symmetry. The cut is the one of most important characteristics of a diamond as it defines the quality of the stone. The way a diamond is cut, influences its light performance, optimal symmetry and uniqueness. Their craftsmanship demand greater skills, time, and cost to develop, making them premium in the market.
These are the supplies from your Loose Diamond Kit, available with the PackshotMacro DIS photo studio, required for this tutorial:
1- Ideal Scope
2- Ideal Scope raiser
3– 3 optical O-rings
4- Air caps
Note: Larger diameter for larger diamonds.
It is important to clean your diamond properly before creating the view. Use a lint free microfiber cloth or a steam cleaner.
On the software, click on “turntable controls” and turn “ON” the air suction mode. Then, with the tweezer, place the diamond on the air cap so it stands vertically upright. Next, insert the Ideal Scope over the diamond, laying flat on the raiser.
Position your camera in front of the diamond’s table. It should be set to 0 degree, as shown on the image. Use the “turntable controls” on the software to rotate the diamond until it is facing the camera’s lens. It is very important that the diamond is perfectly centered with the camera’s lens. Use the positioning marks on the software to help you with the centering.
On the software interface, set your camera’s aperture value to 13, ISO 400 and shutter speed 1/10. Then click on the “picture style” toggle and adjust the saturation to 4 and sharpness 7. Next, turn off all lights on your studios, leaving only the toplight at 100%
Before creating the view, your diamond needs to be focused. On the software, make a x 10 zoom by double clicking the zoom button. Then, turn OFF the “depth of field” toggle and manually adjust the focusing area according to your diamond’s shape. Use the picture as a guide to the diamond focusing areas for different diamonds shape. Now that your gem is focused, turn the “depth of field” back ON.
Note: Adjust the Ideal Scope left, right, back and forth until the Hearts and Arrows become more homogeneous and defined.
Now you are all set. The software automatically takes the first photo on 0° to create the Arrows view. It then synchronizes the second camera shot with the turntable’s 180° rotation to shoot the diamond’s pavilion creating the Hearts views. Save your files.
