Need help with a macro for product photography
I need some guidance with regard to a good lens for product photography. I am specifically trying to figure out an ideal way to photo my handmade party goods-which are mostly glitter accented. I am finding it difficult to capture text, along with the details. I cannot just scan the products because they are 3d and I am trying to capture the sparkle and uniqueness. I can never quite seem to capture the product/sparkle in a way that looks amazing.
I am an amateur photographer on my best day. I have gotten better over the years, but I am not a pro and taking photos is always stressful for me. I have a D5100. I try to only shoot in natural light. I almost always use my 35mm 1.8 DX lens.
I do not feel I can get close enough to the products most times. And I do not feel I am capturing the sparkle in the best way. I am not sure if maybe I should try a set up that a jewelry or food photographer might use.
Any help or input would be so appreciated.
