My niece is a jeweller and has her own line of handmade, mostly silver, jewellery. Not too many gemstones. Her website is www.clarepoppi.com Most of the shots on the website are high-key.
Anyway, she is updating her website and my wife volunteered my services to take photos of her jewellery. I know that I will need to use a tent and some reflective Perspex as a base. I am thinking that an of f16 or smaller would highlight the detail.
Any tips from people who have done this before would be greatly appreciated.
