I finally achieved a really decent picture the other day. It was bright out, but not shining on the ring because it was almost cloudy. I’ve seen some really amazing ones though too…I tried one where the sun was shining on the ring and it didn’t turn out nearly as good because I couldn’t only catch one little refraction at a time

Same here. I have yet to master the art of catching the shine 🙁 A lot of people said outdoors, but not in direct sunlight

@BluePeaches:  Just don’t use flash, make sure the light around you is bright enough….good luck

@GizmoQT1:  I agree. Using flash generally dulls out the shine in pictures. What I do is I keep my ring near a good light source (generally a lamp) and have the light shining above and behind the stone. Usually gives out some pretty good pictures!

steady hands or tripod. even a slight movement will blur things.

I’m pretty sure sorcery is involved.

Every ring photographs differently. Lighting is the factor that will make or break your shot, try natural soft light that is not directed straight at your ring. Try and keep a steady hand (try resting your camera on a table) and don’t get discouraged, when I started photographing wedding ring shots where alwase the hardest for me, just play around and you will eventually get a great one!

Lighting.  This is my all time favorite picture of my diamond.  It shows the warmth and depth of it.  And it has my FH’s ring in it too, so it makes me super happy!
