How can i upgrade my video

hello everyone

I would like to know how to improve my videos. I would like to use these videos to present my gems on my sales site in the future, what do you think?

Thanks for your help

I can make a few suggestions…not a bad type of vid for selling colored stones, could be a little sharper. If you are not using some kind of tabletop tripod, you might try that. I assume you are using a cell phone. There are macro lenses with ring lights available on ebay, and you might try one of those. Then as a gemologist/gem cutter, I would want to see the gem face on, so your camera angle is a little off in your example. I’d want to see the color and whether there is any windowing when the stone comes round to the camera lens axis being exactly perpendicular to the stone’s table. The video is the teaser, but I guess you know you have to give a description with dimensions,weight and a clarity designation.

Thanks for your help!

That is a very nice video, acceptably sharp and the stone is face up to the viewer when the table is in full view. One thing I missed on my first comment. Your background has some slight color to it on my monitor…it’s a little bit lavender. Based on comments on sales pages for gem rough, people don’t take kindly to this, esp. when the stone is light colored and near the same hue as the background color…they think you are trying to distort the color of your stone. I think it you can play with the white balance of your camera and the light source you are using, you can get much closer to pure white. Then you can work on getting the image razor sharp, if any tweaking of that is possible. Hope this is helpful.
