How to Photograph Jewelry

In a previous article we covered what every beginner needs to know about product photography, a primer to this article.  Photographing jewelry is perhaps one of the more advanced and frankly frustrating disciplines one can try to master.  The practical uses can be applied to many aspects, both for fun and extra income.  This article should help you grasp a better understanding of how to create inspiring photography.

Why photography jewelry?  There’s a list of reasons, some more obvious like setting up an Etsy or eBay shop to sell items or being hired by a local jewelry store to provide photos for their website.  A less obvious reason would be to create a list of detailed photos for your home owners’ insurance, something most people overlook.  Another reason is for the sheer pleasure in taking on a challenge and successfully doing it.”
