Stabilizing your camera minimizes the shaking and vibrations that can turn a perfectly framed jewelry photo into a blurry mess. The best way to make your camera stable is to use a tripod. But if you don’t have a tripod yet or find yourself unable to take a tripod to your photo shoots, you can use today’s tips to take clearer photos!
Even if it’s just you, a camera and your jewelry you can still take crystal clear photos – you just have to become the tripod! People naturally sway when we stand, even when we think we’re being completely still. Reduce your own motion by leaning on something solid, like a tree or a wall. If you’re seated make sure what you’re sitting on is stable and won’t wobble when it comes time to press the shutter button.
The farther you hold your camera from your body the more likely your photos are to be blurry. Try bracing your elbows against your sides to keep your arms steady. Take a deep breath and exhale completely before pressing the shutter button on your camera. You might be surprised how big of a difference you get in your photos!
