Macro work

Had the lovely Victoria Ward over this morning as I tried to help her with some Macro photography.  Bit of a nightmare as we couldn't get the light right at all.  It was for a small diamond bracelet, so we needed a dark background.  My homemade lightbox (from Ikea!) had various pieces of dark material put inside and we eventually settled on using my wife's black velvet dress as a background.  The light just wasn't right though so after much trial and error we settled on the dress draped over a table in the window with natural light and the bracelet in a circle on top.  I was directly above the bracelet and got the following shot.
