Photographing the Australian Boulder Opal Jewelry

You’re gunna love it…

but be sure to tell us if you don’t!

Customer satisfaction means everything to us when it comes to selling our Australian Boulder Opal Jewellery.

At Opal Art Global we know how hard it is to shop for opal from digital images.

OPAL, above all else, loves playing with light.

Furthermore, opals love to be held, worn and admired.

These are all elements we consider when we photograph the opals for the web stores.

When we photograph the Australian Boulder Opal Jewellery for our webstores we strive to show the opal as they look in real time/natural light.

When we first started out taking digital images of the opals, we thought we had to put them in the sun but, lo and behold! we soon learnt they look best out of the sun.

Cloud cover and time of day are the two key factors we consider when taking photos.

It’s not uncommon to see Rick out there looking up at the sky assessing whether the light is right for photography.

While getting the light right is one thing, the other thing is, we must capture the personality of the opal in the image.

To do this we photograph the opal on many angles and change the background to show how it looks in various contrasting lights and backgrounds.

But nothing beats the real thing.

To have, hold and feel the energy of OPAL now that’s something else!

We are always happy to do more photos or even take videos if you see something you like and need more images to help you get to know the opal better. Just get in touch at our webstore.

Or Etsy store.

Here some examples of what customers said when they met their opal for the first time.

Gorgeous! Even more beautiful than the pictures could have captured. I will certainly buy from this seller again as soon as an appropriate occasion comes up.
