Hello everyone. I have a few questions that if you can answer, I would highly appreciate it.
What does white balance do on a camera? I have a Nikon D3200 and for now I have been photographing my jewelry outside. It's strange that sometimes I have the ring on white paper and the background is kind of blueish while other times they are not (I photographed it during different times of the day).
I cannot post pictures here, but if you view my website at jemsfromheaven.com you will be able to see the problem.
What other recommendations do you have when photographing jewelry? Any PhotoShop edit suggestions? When is the best time to shoot?
I would like it if my jewelry was in a white background like this example here: (see here)
The problem is if I completely whiten the background of the ring that I took, the silver of the ring will not match with the background color because the silver is reflecting natural daylight color (kind of blue) where it was originally taken. That's why I need to match the silver and paint it as if it was taken in a completely white lighting situation. If anybody can help me with this, that would be great!
Feel free to buy something! :) Thank you, God bless.
