Great jewelry images are a must for a website, shopping site, print materials, or juried shows and competitions, but small shiny things can be difficult to photograph. Rather than complicate things further by learning complicated camera settings, we’re going to show you what your phone’s camera can accomplish. Learn about basic lighting techniques, how to choose the best background for your items, and how to process your images for the best results. If you have struggled with trying to photograph your jewelry or other smaller work, you’ll love gaining insight on how to create photos that will get attention.
