    Hello, I have a C-50 zoom digitial camera. I have tried for 2 days using different natural lighting and inside lighting and can't seem to take a good picture of silver jewerly with diamonds in it. I have tried every setting on the camera, If anyone could give me a tip or two it would be greatly appreciated :D

    Somewhere on this site someone has thrown the same issue out, the problem is I don't know exactly where or which thread or forum it is in or how long ago it was. I hope for your sake that the poster or responder will see this thread and give you a heads up. You could also try the search option to see if you can locate it.

    Howdy and welcome

    Without expensive studio equipment it's kind of an experiment as you go...A quick google search ... Jewelry Photography ... turns up plenty of sites with general suggestion that may help...

    post a picture with some info about the settings/lighting that were used and maybe you will get some good feedback here

    There is another thread about this more recent than the one Cheeseball posted but I hav'nt found it yet

    If your camera has macro mode, that's always a good first step. That would allow a nice, clear shot.

    The trickiest part is the right lighting/white balance.

    Light is most usually reflective off a shiny surface when it comes from directly behind you, shining on the object from the same direction your lens is pointing.

    You may need two light sources hitting the object at 45 degree angles. The background could be black felt, or something else that will take away stray light and won't leave hot spots.

    Thanks. That was the only one I could find. I'm sure Buck has a better way to access old threads.
