Default Photographing iridescence in beads

I posted a tutorial on photographing beads some time ago and it seems that the technique is more valuable now that we are shooting iridescence.

My camera is a god send...very smart and I am stuck on my old version of paintshop pro 7 because I know how to use it...
I use a mavica CD500 that when shooting in low light brings up this orange grid that knows that it is too dark and with that grid it brightens the photo...that is why a sheet of bright white computer paper is best.
The reason that NO direct light is so important when shooting iridescence is that the highlights compete with the changing colors on the surface.

You want no highlights.
Again I use an old version of paintshop pro (7) because I know it and how to use it and so I am not interested to find a new one.

here is the picture


This always give me true colors and I give all the credit to my camera.
Incredible camera!

I think I have finally figured out how to get this shine with DH. Generally I follow what they have on their website.
Anyone want me to post a tutorial? Send me a PM
