how to photograph signet rings ideas?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
