- HD version is better than the Standard one Review by Joanne
If purchasing this, be sure to get the HD version. It's better quality. I accidentally bought the STD version and then went back and bought the better one.
Definitely some 'Ah-Ha!' moments in this series for me. I've learned a LOT from them and can use the info to create much better pictures for my jewelry!

- Disappointing - does not list equipment requirements Review by Martha
Can't tell you how bummed I was when I bought this and realized I needed a tetherable camera and Adobe photo editing software or couldn't do anything in the video. My Canon Powershot was the first one that came out without the ability to tether, and I had to spend hours on the web trying to find workarounds - there aren't any. Plus I don't have Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom. I submitted a review to this effect last year but nobody published it. Check your camera capabilities and be ready to go out and purchase expensive software or this video will be useless. These requirements should be listed in the item description and they are not. BTW, it's not impossible to follow these instructions with a desktop computer but it really helps to have a laptop too. You won't find any of this out until you buy the video.

- Awesome Video Review by Catherine Miesen
I just watched the whole video and I can't wait to get into the studio and use these instructions. The video gives you instruction that is simple and very to the point. I just am so pleased with my purchase. If you have had any difficulty photographing your jewelry, this is the video for you. Jim Lawson tells you the equipment and set up you need. He goes over camera settings and even shows you a little on how to process your pics on the computer. I don't have the set up he recommends (and you can tell by the quality of my pics) but I soon will and my old equipment will be for sale. I would give this video a six star rating if I could!
