Use the Macro setting. it’s made for up close shots.

No flash and plenty of focus! Be sure your sparkly is clearly focused before snapping a shot.

I’m glad you started this thread.  I have the same problem.  I’ve tried using macro and no flash as well.  Still blurry.  I can’t wait to find out what the trick is!

ETA:  @littlegraykitten:  You’re right.  The article is very long and wordy, but helpful.  I can’t wait to try out her tips.

Macro setting for focus and turn the exposure way down. Here’s a picture from after I figured it out:


and here’s one from before. Big difference. Both are no flash…

Natural lighting (outdoors in the sunlight is usually best). Macro setting (the setting that looks usually like a tulip on your camera). And some sort of texture in your background, like a flower, or in my case, some stones:

As pp’s said– Macro setting, outside in natural sunlight with no flash on. Steady hands are also a plus! lol

I’m not too proficient with my camera, so fiddling with settings wasn’t going to work for me.  I found the suggestion to use a white background (I just used blank paper) quite helpful.
