Giveaway - Modahaus Table Top Photo Studio Set-ups for Jewelry Photography

You don't have to own an iPhone to appreciate UK based Lex McColl's amazing post on how he used his new iPhone 4 and the Modahaus table top photo studio set up to take great jewelry pictures.

An iPhone camera is not what he typically uses as a professional product photographer but he was curious to see if the pictures it took could pass muster in the hardest test of all - jewelry pictures with white backgrounds!

The short answer to that is yes, if you have an app called camera+ ($1.99), a special stand for the iPhone, proper lighting and the Modahaus. No wonder the post drew a lot of attention from iPhone fans. However, the real star of the post as far as jewelry artisans are concerned is the new Modahaus table top photo studio! This innovative system was developed to improve on the traditional light tents.

There are several features which make Modahaus so much better than an ordinary light tent. The light filtering effects are awesome with the special sheets of translucent polymer in white and four other colors as well  in opaque white. It is a highly compact system which sets up quickly. Check out this short video which shows how fast that process is!



Also innovative is the infinity curve produced by the bending of the top sheets when attached to the backdrop support.  This eliminates unsightly horizons.

The sheets are resistant to water and oils and are anti-static. If you're tired of greasy finger prints on background papers and taking pictures of dust specks and stray hair, you'll definitely appreciate those two features! It also wipes clean easily and is food safe if you also like taking pictures of your latest cupcake creation or whatever.

Lex's post showed how he obtained the white background pictures using lights.  For non-professionals like us, we won't be able to afford the LED light panels he used for the picture above. But Lex also uses a couple of cheap angle poise lamps with CFL daylight bulbs for his other shots which are much more affordable.

In the picture below, he simply reorientated the backdrop support to accommodate a necklace.  The resulting picture of the pendant needed just cropping and very little post-editing.

The colored sheets can be muted by placing them underneath a translucent white one as well using another as a light diffusing tunnel as shown below. Are you thinking earrings like I am?  How about popping out the glass from a small picture frame and propping it up with a couple of clamps for an earring shoot?

I was so impressed with the Modahaus, I actually bought the Studio 216, the smallest one.  It cost about US$54 including the shipping. Note : international shoppers do not have to pay the UK's 20% sales tax called the VAT. They didn't have Paypal when I bought it but they will very soon.

It was a bit more than what I paid for my large light tent.  It won't replace it  because I still need it for Lola (remember the mannequin post?) but I will definitely use the Modahaus for workshops and at home.

Within a few minutes of me setting it up, I took what is the most professional picture I have ever taken using my Lumix (I have no stand for my iPhone), the Modopocket stand and in natural light. I just cropped it smaller. No Photoshop! This is the same pair of earrings I used for the post about my new camera.  I much prefer this picture even though it was literally "plonk earrings down and click"! Doesn't the blue background look great with the green onyx and beads?


I loved the subtle changes in the background hue which was simply due to light coming from one direction -  the window on the left and shadows.  Lex pointed out that "the  inside of light tunnel also gives pleasant reflections in the piece."  Yep, those translucent sheets are magic!  But there are ways to improve.  I shall be experimenting further with guidance from Lex.  So watch out for future posts as he shares invaluable professional tips on how to take better pictures.


If you're as excited as I am, get ready to be in a frenzy!  Modahaus is sponsoring not just one but TWO Studio 216 set-ups as giveaways for a couple of lucky winners. This size will also work for other crafters so long as the items are not too big.  If you make larger items, there are two other sizes available.

If you do go on to own a Modahaus, Lex would love to have your pictures in his website gallery. He plans to add product links to online shops. Read - free promotion!

  15. What a fantastic idea! Taking photos of my jewelry is the one thing I have the most difficulty doing. This would save so much time just setting up! Thank you for sharing.

  16. This is awesome! I'd never heard of this before, but now I definitely want one. My last light tent was a very good example of "you get what you pay for". Hence my make-shift tablecloth on a chair by the window lighting setup I mentioned on another post, lol.

    Even if I had a decent light tent, those photos are so much better than any I've ever shot.

    I just shared it on the AF forums: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=forums&op=view_topic&tid=41564&topic_src=1

    I'm also a blog subscriber, a Facebook fan, I follow you on Twitter, and I just shared the link on both Facebook and Twitter.

  19. Wow, incredible giveaway! I don't have a professional photo editing program as we are still on a bit of a budget since starting our business, so this would be perfect! And it's so easy! Looks like I have the same camera that you have also, Pearl, so I am ready to shoot away and create professional-looking product photos for our website and sales sites!

    Subscribe to your blog and am a Facebook fan also. Thanks for the two opportunities to enter!

  58. (I got a 503 error message on my previous attempt to send my reply, hope this doesn't become a duplicate.)

    I'd love a chance to win this one! The set up looks very nifty and portable. That last one is a good thing not just because it saves valuable space, but also because we've got cats that love to sit in the warm and cozy tent after a photo session. And they don't wipe their paws before jumping up! Being able to put away the set up would help a lot even if it wouldn't stop the kitties from interfering during the photo sessions. One of our cats, who's especially fond of the big cumbersome DIY light tent I've got, has also done her best to wreck it. I've lined the top and sides with paper (had no fabric as recommended in the instructions) and she tore a big hole in one side with her claws, leaned on another side so the paper ripped apart under her weight and, finally jumped on the top (luckily that paper was loose so it wasn't ton, but still crumbled and dirty). This set up would be a fab replacement for my heavy, cumbersome and mangled homemade framework.

    But she often wants me to photograph her work for competitions and the like, and I'd love to make a better job of them, so this is a really handy piece of kit.

    Now the only question is who pays for it... Unless I win one, of course ;-)

  134. This looks like a great product! I would love to be able to try it out since I plan on starting an Etsy business soon. The picture of the earrings looks really cool - I love the shading of the blue. Thanks for writing about it!

    I just became a subscriber, and I'm a follower on Facebook.

  135. I want one! *raises hand* I'm also a follower. I also take pics of dust specks in my recently made cardboard light box.

  136. This is just what I need! The main reason I haven't set up a shop is my lack of satisfaction with my jewelry pics

    I really like this product, specially for the size and the color sheets that gives you different backgrounds.

  156. This is not just an amazing giveaway, but a great product and tutorial for it. I don't take many pictures of my jewelry because I lack in a great set-up(though I've tried with sheets, bright desklamps and everything). My father, who is a macrophotographer, has an amazing lightbox, but unfortunately he lives halfway across the nation, so it's a bit difficult to borrow it when I need it. The wonderful thing about this one, however, is how absolutely compact it is! I don't always have a lot of space to myself at home, and when I get some, most of it is covered in my jewelry and costuming supplies, so this would be absolutely ideal for me and my little crafting space, and might actually give me the quality images I need to finally open my store or even just to show my work off!

    I'm a blog follower and subscriber, and I just added your page on Facebook, too, which is kinda surprising that I hadn't done so yet, BUT all things happen for a reason, apparently!

    Good luck to everyone and I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed. :)
