Hi i am Pete

I work for a Jewelry Artist here in Town. About 2 years ago i bought my first Digital camera a Olympus UZ 2100. I started for fun to make pictures of jewelry and and applied a fantasy backround with adobe photoshop 6.0.My boss liked the pictures so much that he started to use them for his advertisment in magazins.Everything i know by now about photography and photoshop ,i learnt myself.It is really a passion of me.Like it is to make jewelry.So anyway now i really would like to get a nicce camera for macro photograhy with more MB ( Olympus UZ 2100 has 1.9 MB of effective pixels).But what camera should i get.If thereisanybody out there who has experiens with macro photography or even macro photography of Jewelry,

Like Mr. Parish please email me or post it here ,i really would apriciate to here from you .If you want you can also write me in german.

Thank you very much

Peter Roder

first off, let me say that thatis some amazing work there!

when i here macro, i think nikon right off the bat, from what i can tell, nikon has the best macro compared to other cameras

haveing said that, whats your price range?

you might want to consider a d-slr, with a nice little lighting setup, like a lighttable so you get good even lighting and a white background(if exposed corectly) so you can edit it out eaisier

falling off the subject of cameras...

here are some exampels of what i am talking about




it doesnt look like you need those, you pictures look nicely exposed, but for macro photography, you might want one...
