PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE WEB
Techniques used by professional photographers for taking good quality pictures of jewelry for the most are an unsolved mystery.
Jewellery photography is time consuming and requires a bunch of equipment and a professional camera and lenses.
The keys to good jewelry photography are sharpness, lighting, exposure, and in the case of diamond photography, creating some sparkle. Good jewelry photography needs sharp, crisp focus.
If you need outstanding pictures of your jewellery line (and it is important to show your product at it's best) and you don't have the time or resources yourself, find a professional photographer to take the pictures for you. There are many of us on the web.
Talk with the photographer about how you would like the jewellery shot ( white background or something more illustrative, like some of the print ads. you see in magazines)
Fees will vary depending on how complex the shots will be.
Talk to the photographer about the budget you have. Fees depend on how many pieces you need photographed (per shot fee) or a quote for the whole job.
