    Hi there - I am NOT NOT NOT NOT a photographer but am a jewelry maker with a website. I need a little advice on photographing this particular necklace. I have a very simple Kodak easy share digicam, 5.1 megapixels. I took this photo in my light box. The problem I have is with the chain I made - it looks white. It is actually made up of clear beads lined with silver. Any suggestions as to how I can make it look more silver instead of white? I don't have photoshop or anything like that, just picasa2.

    I'm also a jewelry maker and have found a trick or two for bringing out the true colors of my jewelry.

    What you need:
    Use natural light, an assistant, and a white sheet of paper.

    Go outside or to a sunny window to take the photographs. Set up your jewelry in full sunlight and ask your assistant to shade the jewelry with the piece of paper.

    Works like a charm.

    Jewelry is one of the hardest items to photograph. Search "photography jewelry" on the web. You will find tons of information. It is not easy and your need the right equipment if you don't do it outdoors.
