Getting new pictures for the shop

I have been working on getting new pics of my jewelry for the shop. I’m having a bit of a hard time with it. They all seen to be coming out yellowish. I’m going to try again today and see if I can figure it out.  Sometimes I wish I have a profesional camera and a studio. lol.

  1. Hi,

    Just thought I would share a few tips that may be of help in regards to the photos coming out yellowish. I’ve photographed many vintage jewelry items, which I had sold on ebay so I relate to what you are frustrated with.

    If you have more than one type of light source that can present a problem. Natural daylight is best whenever possible, but incandescent light mixed with natural light can turn the photo yellow. Incandescent lighting itself can also make photos turn out too yellow. Look also at items surrounding your jewelry. Light might be bouncing off other things surrounding the item you are photographing, which could be casting a yellowish tone.

    If you need to use artificial light try to look for bulbs that mimic natural lighting. There are also bulbs, which cast a bluer light. They are more expensive, but they help to eliminate some of the yellowish tones. HTH!
