Light it up

Pick up LED table lamps from Ikea or Argos – there’s no need to invest in expensive studio lighting when these do the job just as well!

Customise your camera

Download the Camera FV 5 app for Android phones – you can set a custom white balance as well as adjusting other aspects of your camera.

The right angle

Invest in an overhead tripod for smartphones and use your phone camera’s self-timer feature. An overhead viewpoint is perfect for shooting jewellery as it allows you maximum control over lighting whilst helping to eliminate shadows.

Visual appeal

Invest in a table-top studio with lightbox and coloured backdrops – you can find these for an affordable price online, and it’s a great way to add interest to shots.
