Your tips for beginners’ product shooting was great! As a beginner can you offer tips on shooting earrings with delicate chains/beads that hang 2.5”. Macro won’t capture the length and I must hang the product. Thanks!!

If you intend to hang the earrings, you can still use a macro lens or a prime lens. However, that may involve backing the camera up enough so that the entire set of earrings is filling the frame. Also, shooting with strobes as mentioned in the video would give you a lot more light output, thus a greater depth of field.  

Good ideas, thanks for sharing.
