First things first, let's figure out your light source. You want to find a spot with DIRECT sunlight and diffuse it with a transparent material. 


Step 2: Build a Mini Light Box

Make a little light box with your foam boards, both big and small. Just arrange them to form a box-like space around your jewellery. It helps control the light even more and keeps your photos looking consistent.



Step 3: Keep Things Steady

Now, let’s keep your setup from wobbling. Use some heavy books to hold down the foam boards. These boards are going to be your makeshift studio walls and floor, so you want them nice and stable.


Tip 1: Change Up the Light

Put your light source behind you or off to the side to change up the lighting. You can play around with more foam boards to block or bend the light exactly how you want it. This lets you mess with shadows and make your photos more dramatic.


Tip 2: Keep Reflections in Check

If you’re dealing with shiny jewellery, keep a small foam board handy to manage reflections. This little trick ensures the light spreads out evenly and doesn’t glare too much on your jewellery.

Tip 3: Focus on the Sparkle

Make sure your jewellery isn’t getting hit by too much direct light. This helps keep the sparkle just right and avoids any part of your jewellery getting lost in bright spots or dark shadows. Move it around until you find the best light.

Using different sizes of foam boards to play with the lighting really helps bring out the best in your photos. It’s all about using what you have to make your jewellery shine on camera.
