Hello,

I may soon need to take a lot of pictures of products for a friend for a website they are creating. The objects will be different sized jewellery boxes from ring size to large necklace size and some other similar styled objects.

I have looked at some of the videos/tutorials on lighting and they help a lot but was just wondering the best type of lens for this kind of work etc. I presume full frame camera would be good also? opposed to 1.6 crop.

Anyone got any good tips on a DIY light box or something similar...

Thanks,

Tom.
