Hi guys,

I hope you don't mind the example shots straight from my phone, but I am seeking some help/tips from you about lighting pieces like the ones in the pictures. It's my wife's work and she is struggling to be happy with the lighting/capturing the pieces in a way that she likes (For example she is unhappy about the missing light/sparkle in the red circle on one of the pictures)
She likes to play with colored filters/colored light bulbs in clamp lights, but finds that she is missing contrast/brightness.

I am interested in your suggestions, when it comes to equipment (my GAS and wish to play with lights myself would not say no either! :) ). I am willing to "throw money at it", would consider to buy used and have a budget of 700-1200 dollars for it (cheaper would be ok too and maybe a good start for her/us). I don't think flashes would be the way to go for her and she would need to see the light sources at all times.

Thanks! ( I have been looking a little around the internet, but have not spent much time reading articles. I'm happy to read up on things)

Thanks! I am getting myself a copy of it tomorrow from my public library.
Does anyone have some other insides?
