    Hello all,
    I have two small jewellery web sites and run on a limited budget. I always struggle to achieve good quality photo's and have decided to spend some money on some studio lighting as I think this may be where I'm going wrong, I've read the post's in this forum but I'm still left with questions.
    My current set up is that I have digital canon ixus 500, a 30cm cubelite box, and I use 4 18watt daylight helix bulbs in aluminium reflector's.

    I was looking at something like buying two 500w Tungsten 3200K (int 100) which are around £45 to £55 each with bulb.
    Would this improve the quality of my pictures?
    Would anyone have any advice on jewellery photography or my set up and how to improve it. I really only have about £100 to spend.
    I have files to as my present photo quality, but they been edited in photo package, But i can not post attachments to this message.

    Please excuse my limited knowledge, I'm a complete beginner.
