The Ring Shot

When I’m not shooting weddings or portrait sessions, or happily blogging, I’m often practicing my shooting skills.  As a photographer and (somewhat of a) perfectionist, I always feel like there’s room for improvement.  I like pushing myself to be more creative, or to get better at getting the shot “right” in-camera.  Lately, I’ve been practicing flash photography and macro photography.  Macro photography is slightly tricky because it requires patience and a steady hand to get a sharp image.  Usually the depth of field is very narrow, so it’s pretty easy to miss focusing on the subject.  It took me a couple of tries, but with some practice, I was able to fire off these two of my wedding ring.

This was a fun idea I happened upon at a recent wedding – using a candle stick or bottom of a glass to balance the ring on!

I focused on the main diamond for this one.  If you look at the wood table the cork is resting on, at the very bottom you can see the tiny sliver that is actually in focus.  If I had moved even a centimeter closer, the whole thing would have been out of focus!  Crazy, right?
