Hi guys, I know you get asked for advice alot but I would really appreciate any replys! I am setting up a jewellery website and will need a camera and lighting kit. Most of my photos will be stock photos from suppliers but about 10% just arent good enough to use and I also want to get a good level of consistency throughout my site. Bearing in mind that I wont need to take alot of pics I need a budget option for now - I can always upgrade later when I re-coup some of the money I've spent out. I know that I will need a light tent, 2 lights for the sides, a dazzler light at the front, acrylic bases and a tripod. 1. For a budget option could I buy a couple of desk lights and fit a decent daylight bulb - would this have the same effect as a proper lighting rig? 2. What do you think of this light tent? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/50CM-Photo-St...50QQihZ007QQcategoryZ3860QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem 3. Know of anywhere to get affordable acrylic bases from? I need a white, a clear and a black one. OK the tricky bit - the camera.... I am ashamed to say that I currently own a Vivitar Vivicam 3760, which I hardly ever use, so I think a new camera is an essential bit of kit. I need to take detailed pics at close range, and be able to capture the sparkle and sheen of gemstones. This camera will only be used for this kind of work and wont be needed for portraits, landscapes etc. I would buy second hand - most likely from ebay because for the amount of use it will get I cant afford to buy a new one. 4. Can you name some cameras that would fit this purpose? ie cheap as possible just for good quality jewellery pics? I would really appreciate any replys, Thank you, Kel.
