About Looking for help from jewelry shooters on how to shoot something like this to make it look decent. Types of backgrounds, lighting methods etc... Digital SLR is obviously not the way to go with this stuff. How do the pros do it?

A fine presentation... just in time for Xmas... now let's see the details... for the price is certainly secondary... as is DigiSLR...

It is clear that there are houses that could use your expertise for their clients... suggest:

Amongst others...

Compliments & good fortune

I would recommend a black or navy blue velvet background. It would give a softer appearnce and let you focus more attention on the jewelry, also it would absorb some of the ambient light and show less texture there. And maybe one very bright light off to the side to give it a little bling bling.

It's a very nice shot though.

Looks good for a catalog description.

Phil - I'll drop you a line with the address of some one I know who shoots gems for a living. He teaches on the topic so he may have some reference material!

Perhaps use one of the aliens as a model? hehehe...

I went to a camera store last week and apparently the salesman noticed that I was pretty new to this stuff, since he started giving me all of these free brochures and cd's etc. As it happens, on one of the cd's, PHOTOFLEX, there is an article in there about shooting jewelry. If you're interested, you might look at and see if the article is on their site, or I could email it to you. I didn't actually read the entire article (I just looked at the pretty pictures) and I'm sure they're trying to sell a few products in there somewhere, but it looked like they explain things fairly well.

Digital should be fine, but the S1 is too low res. Try building a cone of translucent material, cut off the top to shoot through, strobes through the sides. This will give an even illumination. Background? Well, black velvet is traditional for diamonds.
