* Photographing Jewellery *
Photographing jewelry is NOT easy. It's tiny, sparkly, reflects everything and a little shake of the hand makes your pictures fuzzy as all heck. My first jewellery photos were a nightmare. Hours of painstaking effort for blurry pictures with terrible colour that made my best work look like crap.
I took my jewellery outside, on the deck, on the outdoor table, inside, on the desk, on the floor even! I changed the settings, I used a flash, I took off the flash, I changed the ISO, manual, automatic, shutter speed, you name it! I even got out my extended snap button so I wouldn't shake the camera when I clicked the pic. Nothing worked!
Here are some of my original jewellery pics....
