Jim Lawson considers himself more a jewelry photographer than a retoucher, but Photoshop's masking and layers are an essential part of his striking cover photos. Jim photographs jewelry with several different lightings, then combines the best of each to highlight the unique beauty of the handcrafted pieces he's made his specialty.
