Ha! Our camera only likes doing macros which is lucky cos that's what I like.

The macro feature on a digital camera can be your best friend when trying to get those close up shots for use on the web. It can mean the difference between a crisp, clear close up and a big blur. I found that out a long time ago. It just took some time finding out how to work the macro feature. Once that was accomplished, I was ready for action.
BTW, I actually find the direct sunlight to harsh for picturetaking for my jewelry. That's because of all the shiny stuff. Sunlight tends to make too many reflections. Bright shade or a true color lamp (which I was finally able to get on sale at Michael's) work best for jewelry as far as I am concerned.

Hi Red Fox,
sadly my camera has the worst white balance feature ever- it over-compensates so in artificial light everything is blue, or yellow, and in shade, bright or otherwise it opts for a sort of plastecine grey Outside in direct sun is the only thing thats worked so far.

This leaves us with a bit of a dilemma when it comes to photographing anything silver- the enamelled wire we use isnt too bad but silver as you say reflects everything and baffles my camera which decides the best thing to do is ignore it completely. At some point I'll buy one not designed for just holiday snaps and actually learn what all the buttons do

Mercifully, we're in Cornwall, UK where the sun is never that bright so am getting away with it for the most part for now!

I never photograph in direct sunlight. Daylight yes, but not sunlight. I think it causes problems for many different types of photography.

The annoying thing is also that when I take a photo of a painting, it always distorts the frame. Grrr.

I usually take all pictures with my items in a light-tent now which is much better than daylight ... thinking again, I'm hardly ever at home when there is daylight.
I knew there was a reason
