TOPIC: Photographing Jewellery
Re:Photographing Jewellery 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
Like most people I've had problems over the years when photographing jewellery. I have several cameras..from SLRs to popular sureshots. Have to say my current favourite is my Sony Cybershot T900!!
I did buy bits and pieces to make a lightbox but haven't got around to making one.
My pictures are always taken on macro and I'm not averse to using flash. I tend to like a lot of my pieces to 'tell a story' so I use backgrounds and frames.
I do like good lighting and have found that , apart from daylight. I get my best results under the kitchen cupboard downlighters!!
I like Irina's beautiful clear pictures and aim for that with Swarovski crystal pieces. Best tip here...give them a good polish...nothing worse than looking at your gorgeous macro pictures to see fingerprints clear enough to make a CSI proud!!!

Re:Photographing Jewellery 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
Because this seems to be a subject that a lot of people ask about, we have written a Photography Tutorial with a large section for Jewelers. It was collaborated with brookephoto who is a professional product photographer and a couple of other members here. It shows how to make light boxes cheaply, how to tell soft and hard lighting and much more. It's explained clearly with lots of images by way of illustration.

You can find it here on the site
