    Default How to shoot costume jewellery

    Hi friends

    Is there any special techniques to shoot costume jewellery such as those made of crystals, beads etc?What is the best environment to shoot? What types of equipments do we need? If using digital camera, which type of lighting should we choose?

    Hold the lens backwards to take the picture, but you will need an adapter to hold it.

    If you jewellery reflect light, you will also have to think of methods to cut of reflection.

    If you use Idiot proof Digital camera (meaning not DSLR), or Fixed Lens SLR-Like Digital, you cannot reserve the lens.

    actually i remember someone posted a series about a month back where a s70 with a reversed 50mm was used. I think you just need the proper adapters

    For the best results, I think nothing short of a macro lens and a light tent for soft diffused lighting. A big plus for a light tent is of course the surroundings would not get reflected on the jewellry surface.

    I would even look at using a tilt/shift lens for photographing jewellery.
