How Do You Photograph Gemstones And

Jewelry

When you photograph gemstones and jewelry it is important to look at your

macro settings and your lightning.

First, you’ll need to use the macro setting on your camera for a good close-up shot. Soft, diffused lighting is essential, no direct light on the jewelry itself, and no flash. If your indoor lighting is difficult to adjust, you may want to take a raw picture so that the camera won’t add any of it’s own effects. You may also have good luck in outdoor lighting. Try different colored backgrounds to see which shows up better. Take several shots of the jewelry so that you can compare the quality and color for the best results. There is no one way that will always work, so experimentation is necessary. Example 1: The picture below was taken with a macro setting, close indirect fluorescent lighting, and no flash. Example 2: The front of the silver pin below was taken on the cement in direct sunlight with a macro setting. The back of the pin was taken indoors against a white background with no flash.
