TAKING good quality pictures of jewellery for most is an unsolved mystery. However, there are some simple techniques applied by the professional, which even amateur photographers can use to obtain dramatic results with minimal effort. Product photography tent, black Acrylic sheet (150x150 mm) with continuous lighting and soft box with four times photographic lamp (55W) and flash. A reflector is also very useful to direct light on your subject correctly and a steady tripod with trigger set. Once you are set up and have followed these steps you will be able to start. Remember, the first time is never easy, keep practicing until you succeed, and if you have the suggested equipment you can also do product photography, food and whatever you imagine. - Johann van Dalen.
