How to Take the Perfect Diamond Photo with your Phone

In this article, we give you important photography tips when using your mobile phone camera, including what to avoid, to create the most authentic image of your fancy color diamond.

Since casual photography took over our lives, whether taken with semi-professional cameras or our mobile phones, some kind of digital image will accompany any diamond report we propose to a client. The client then presents this image to the end buyer to induce the selling process.

The quality of the image becomes a crucial element to set the selling process in motion. As we have certain visual expectations from a diamond – especially a fancy color diamond, the color factor being the main motivation for the purchase – by saying quality, we actually mean authenticity.

The vast majority of all fancy color diamond images we encounter in our everyday work – such as websites that exhibit inventory, mobile phone images, or even auction catalogs – do not faithfully represent the actual look of the diamond. These images, in most cases, are over processed. This creates disappointment for the buyer once the stone is presented. In any case, low quality images that do not do justice to the stone will not motivate the buyer to even ask to see it.

In this article, we give you important photography tips when using your mobile phone camera, including what to avoid, to create the most authentic image of your fancy color diamond. With enough practice, you will be able to come up with amazing images and videos that will match the look of your diamond in real life.
