White balance on D50 set correctly?

Taking shots of my jewelry with the d50 and macro lens. Having trouble getting the background white. Have diffused lighting and am merging the photos on photoshop. Does the white balance need to be adjusted on the camera?

    I guess that was my question was how to manually change the white balance. I ahve tried all the preset options and the best I come up with is a yellowish white.
    Thanks

Are you saying that you're using a white background but it doesn't appear white in the pictures? If so, then yes, you need to change the white balance to match the light. Probably "tungsten" but you could try different settings and pick the one you like best or you could use a white piece of paper and set a manual white balance.

How to set up the perfect focus for shooting jewelry in manual mode?

I would suggest setting your white balance first by putting the camera on "P" mode, then pointing the camera at two or three pieces of white copy paper stacked on top of each other in the same spot where you will be taking the photos. Press the "Func/Set" button and then "Disp" to set the white balance.

Now put the camera in Macro mode by pressing the jog dial towards the "flower" icon and pressing "Func/Set" again.

If you can, try using a tripod to hold the camera as still as possible and then try shooting your jewelry.

Hope this helps!

Hi, Don't know how to obtain clear close up of small subject

Mount your camera on a tripod. Set it for "macro" mode. Turn off the flash. Light the jewelry with lamps (like worklight reflector clip on lamps) fitted with daylight balanced compact flourescent bulbs. Use poster paper of various colors for background. Set your ISO to 400. Set your white balance to "auto white balance". Have fun!

Taking a black and white photo.

You can't, there is no black and white mode on the D50. You will need to take color photos and convert them with photo editing tool.

Pictures come out red

Hey JRochester,
I would make sure the white balance settings were not changed somehow. Depending on your level of expertise I would set the white balance to auto if you are not familiar with white balance, and if you are make sure the white balance is set to your shooting conditions each time you capture and image.

Sincerely,
Allan

Yellow gym pictures

The lighting in the gym was the cause most likely. Try setting the white balance to a different mode

D50 not taking pictures

Not experienced on this but if not taking pictures it could be the `mirror ` is not moving have you tried taking off the lense again and re fitting, you may not have fitted properly.
My own opinion is that pushing the shutter shouldnt cause a problem. Do the white dots line up?
Wish I could be of more help.

Exposure

check exposure compensation settings.
if no value being added/deducted, then the battery would be next, then check for flash setting deviations.
also, check for white balance settings indoors and make sure to use either auto white balance, or select the type of light you have, such as floro's or incandescent.
otherwise, time for service. could also try with different lens.
