Re: Lenses for product videography? Jewellery & models

Do you already have lighting equipment?

Are you trying to get close up shots of jewelry or shots of people wearing jewelry?

If you want close up shots, your best option is a macro lens, however, you could try close-up filters, bellows/extensions tubes, or a reverse mounted lens (works best with a manual prime, and depth of field with be extremely shallow).

BioCommunications Association has some great videos on macro photography, and many of the principles apply to video as well.
