So many bees take such good pictures of their rings. For some reason anytime I take a picture it comes out blury! I have never been able to post MY actual ering just the stock photo. Today my wedding band came in I tried to take a picture but NOPE just a blury mess 🙁
Any tips bees on how to take better pictures?

What kind of camera do you have? Does it have a way to switch to manual focus?

I have a Nicon Coolpix and I have no idea how to do anything on it :/

If it has a macro mode that may help.

the old anne ruthman post is still available. this was always considered the ultimate how to for ring shots:

Yes, a macro mode will help. If you don’t have it, you may be too close to the subject for the camera to be able to focus.
Also, it might help to use a tripod if the shutter speed is slow.

Use the macro setting on your digital camera. (Usually a little flower icon or under your menu/settings you should be able to select a setting for close up shots)
With the setting on, slightly depress the button on your camera and watch how it focuses. If it’s out of focus still, reposition your camera either closer or further away from your ring and try again. Once it is in focus, hold the camera still and snap a few. I recommend turning the flash off just in case of harsh lighting.
Go into a room that is well lit. I use my kitchen or bathroom.
I hope this helps. 🙂
