Jewelry photography woes !!

Since the past month when my camera went bust , I have been increasingly aware of the fact that my pictures are not (almost) always great !!..

People mostly comment that all my creations look better in real life than in the pics..

On one hand I am happy, that they don't look THAT unappealing, because people order them after seeing the pics...and are pleasantly surprised ..! But on the other hand , it is becoming increasingly evident that I have to sharpen my skills in that department ..:P !!

So I have been looking through a lot of articles..and actually I have been feeling slightly alarmed at the information / expertise out there and also if I could actually follow any of them...

Finally found a few I liked on The Beading Gem's Journals. It is a great blog with a lot of amazing info and inspiration..

Here are the links to a couple of tutorials I really liked ...

1. Natural Light Jewelry Photography with White Backgrounds - HERE is the Tutorial link

2. Jewelry Photography set up tips... the link is HERE

Both of these are really easy to follow and tick all the boxes as far as I am concerned..simple equipment and easy to set up..

So now all I have to do , is wait for the people to return my camera... !! It has a busted motherboard according to them... :( ..

Meanwhile, I am sure there are more tips and tutorials that u favor , or that some of you can share... if so ..please send me the links... I absolutely have to improve my skills...
