Photographing Silver Jewellery Discussion

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Sally, one of our online photo community members, writes;

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone has any useful advice for me. I run my own online jewellery boutique and I need to redo all of the photos on my website. The problem I have when photographing silver is that it tends to look gold in the photos. I honestly do not know how to use my camera like I should, I have tried reading the booklet, but it’s all Russian to me =) I have a Casio EX-Z75.


My questions are:

What are the ideal settings?
What sort of lighting should I use, and if using natural sunlight, would it be better to have it behind me when taking the photo, or behind the photo I am taking a picture of?
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated =)
