So.....I decided I needed a "real" camera to take better photos of my jewelry. Here are the things I learned along the way (so far):
1. It won't be cheap. Don't even try. Just do the research and buy the camera.
2. It will take some (significant) amount of time to get good pics. Point & shoot? Not so much.
3. Fstop? Aperture? Shutter speed? ISO? White balance? Exposure compensation? Yes. You have to learn all the things about the camera & how it works.
4. Tiny shiny things are really hard to photograph. Ok, I'll already knew this but I am learning it all over again
5. The number of people you ask about the quality of your new photos will equal the number of different opinions you will get about your photos.
7. Keep moving, keep shooting, keep adjusting
