You may have heard the saying “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” many times. Taking pictures with your best friend, especially if they are wearing a diamond engagement ring, may not be the strangest thing you can do. A picture is worth a thousand words and taking a picture with the engagement ring and sending it to your friends and family is one of the best and easiest ways to announce your engagement.
In this article, we will take a look at some of the best photography techniques for round diamond engagement rings. We can assure you that these images will be a major attraction for your followers on social media.
Find The Proper Lighting
Natural lighting is superior to studio lighting because it not only brings out the best in your diamond but also makes your skin look radiant and healthy. You can begin your diamond ring photoshoot at any time between dawn and dusk because the image will have a good impression from dark to soft light. However, it may vary depending on the time period. For example, photographing the ring first thing in the morning will give you a feeling of freshness, brightness, and vividness.
Give Emphasis To Your Hand And Nails Also
As long as you’re going through the trouble of doing a special photoshoot for this special ring, you might as well make your hands and nails stand out too. This goes for wedding rings as well as everyday rings. As with cleaning a diamond ring, failing to do so will result in less-than-stellar photos. If you regularly go to a nail salon, this shouldn’t be a problem, but if you’re always busy, a simple tip is to use hand cream to moisturize your hands before taking photos.
Clear The Background
The next step is to select the right background for your ring and hand (or hands). Stay away from busy backgrounds; instead, opt for a dark, monochromatic backdrop to help draw attention to your diamond ring. Another option is to use natural scenery as a backdrop, which will enhance the beauty of your engagement ring due to the interplay of the elements in the background.
Choose The Best Angle
We may have our own most aesthetically pleasing angles that make us look good, which is also the same for diamond rings. Many photographers suggest taking the photo of the diamond ring with a top-down angle because it gives a satisfying symmetrical feel.
