The best way to photograph jewelry is to ensure that the pieces are evenly and evenly illuminated. Create your lighting setup at a 45-degree angle with respect to the jewelry. Then adjust the camera to the correct aperture and take the picture. I recommend using a mirrorless DSLR camera for the best results.
Place a light source and a softbox or umbrella at a 45-degree angle to the product. This will keep the lighting soft and even. Keep the camera directly in front of the piece of jewelry. If the product is placed on the back of the sweeper, you may see some shade.
Move the product closer to you for a pure white background. A kit lens usually has a wide-angle element and a short zoom; numerically, the focal length will normally be 18 to 55 mm. Although these lenses are ideal for photographing moments in life, they are not suitable for smaller objects, such as rings or earrings. If you use a macro lens to photograph jewelry, don't be fooled into thinking that a wider aperture (f2.8 or f) will make your photos look brighter.
If you select a large aperture of f2.8, more light enters the lens, but only a small amount of the subject ends up in focus. The rest of the focus is “deflected” and is called bokeh. While bokeh is desirable for portrait photography, it's not for jewelry. Therefore, a large aperture of f2.8 or f4 is not ideal, since you won't be able to see all the details of the entire piece of jewelry.
Standard lenses have a viewing angle of around 50 to 55 degrees diagonally. They are some of the easiest lenses to use because you don't need to account for any type of distortion.
