how to photograph signet rings ideas?

Hey neowin, I googled the hell out of how to photograph signet rings and only seem to come up with engagement rings. I have to photograph 4 signet rings at the same time, being worn. All subjects male and all 4 must appear. Sorta of a family thing for a friend. No faces and only rings + hands. Though exceptions can be made. Anywho, ideas are welcome! As I have no clue! I'm usually creative, but this really goes beyond me apparently

You can do the same thing as the engagement rings which you found the engagement rings articles. 

 

If it was me I'd use 105VR ... something like that. Or if you are standing a few feet away, then you can try the zoom lens for that.

 

If you like, you can ask them to take the rings off and you put them on the cloth or blank paper (any color you want) for up close. Just like stock photographers do.

 

I did take some pictures of my watch years ago. You might have seen it.

Rings have to be on, all 4 males.

Take a look here: https://www.flickr.com/search/?view_all=1&text=signet rings

 

If you find something you like on there, you can take a look at the EXIF on that image so you can learn. Such as what lens, ISO, F stop, etc.

 

Similar to what they did for the engagement/wedding rings.

      OnePlus opens its second IDEAS initiative to gather suggestions for OxygenOS
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Back in March, OnePlus debuted its IDEAS initiative that aimed at collaborating with users to gather ideas and concepts for features for OxygenOS. The company then concluded the beta initiative in May and announced the features that were making it to the OS, including the Always-On Display (AOD) feature, thanks to the feedback.

      Today, the company announced that the second iteration of the initiative back, termed IDEAS 2.0. The firm says that it considered feedback about the program itself during its first stint and that it has incorporated improvements to the process of the program. The firm has opened the initiative today, with the program itself slated to be live from September 28 through November 6. Users with a OnePlus Community account can head to the program’s page to submit their ideas and vote for their pick.

      The company notes that it will review and select the submissions every two weeks and that the final list of adopted ideas will be posted on November 16. It will be selecting seven ideas in each round based on the votes and adds that it will only be accepting software suggestions at this point. Users can also accumulate experience points for each submission and the winner will be given a VIP ticket to a “OnePlus offline event, and round trip with a one-night accommodation”.

      The company has also listed in the blog post the rules for sharing ideas and voting. It will be interesting to see what suggestions are made as part of this initiative and what the company adopts. The feedback for the design changes in OxygenOS 11 have been mixed and the company also explained the rationale behind the changes recently.

      Hey guys,
                       I've had my current chair for about 6 years now and it is has a need to be replaced, I have a bit of sciatica and so I need something with alot of back support. Unfortunately my Wife wont let me spend that much on it and I am limited to between ?50 - ?100, I think this is enough to get a decent chair and some of the chairs I have in mind are below.
       
      Can you suggest any?

      Hi Team,
       
      I've come to a massive mind-block on choosing a dissertation/project for my final year Software Engineering course at uni.
       
      I'm looking at doing a PHP based project, but need it to be pretty complex.
      I was thinking of doing a Content Management System; but after speaking to my supervisor - it doesn't seem like I'd have enough depth in it.
       
      Any ideas, that would be great - and save me ALOT of stress.
       
       
      Thanks

      Hey Guys
      I'm currently producing a website, and I've got an interesting predicament.
      I've got a wall, with many thumbnails on it. As you can see in the attached picture.
      Basically, I want to somehow make it responsive, so it still looks good for every screen size.
      I'm using HTML5Boilerplate, and was wondering how I could make it responsive.
      If you look at the attached image, its what I've got at the moment.
      Any suggestions, that would be great.
      This is the code i've got:


      <div id="wall">
      <div id="innerwall">
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>

      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>
      <div class="face"><img src="images/noface.png" /></div>

      </div>
      </div>
      [/CODE]
      CSS:

      [CODE]
      /*WALL*/
      #wall {
      background-image: url(../images/bg.jpg);
      background-repeat: repeat;
      width: 100%;
      height: 100%;
      min-height: 400px;
      overflow: auto;
      text-align: center;
      }
      #innerwall {
      margin-left: auto;
      margin-right: auto;
      width: 90%;
      }
      .face {
      margin: 25px;
      float: left;
      }
      [/CODE]
