I did an secret proposal session with one of my friends and his girlfriend. Got the engagement ring before he proposed.

while they were having dinner, I got the ring from his buddy who worked at the restaurant and set everything up, and took some photos of it around some of the christmas decorations.

I didn't have my Macro handy when I put this together so this was shot in the 40mm pancake and cropped heavily.

I don't by any means profess to be a wedding photographer (not yet anyway :) ) but we got married last year ourselves so I have lots of bits to practise on around the house. This is my personal favourite ring shot - would be good to know what people think :)

I am still backing up and sorting the shots from sunday, my first solo wedding, (was VERY sick yesterday), but I wanted to give a nice "thank you" to the couple, so I whipped this up really quick for them!

Ring congratulations (external link) by Jcareyphoto (external link), on Flickr

Behind the scenes: I shot this on an 8" square mirror they were using as part of the centerpieces on their tables. I used two forks stuck in a tea candle holder (goldfish bowl shaped thing that had sand and some rocks in around a small candle) to prop up a white napkin. softbox 45* camera right, bare hot-shoe flash 45* camera left.

My best ring shot so far. Taken on an Ice Bar which was lit with Blue lighting. I added a small Sima video light to light the ring. Also my first time using a Macro lens.

This is very nice, but how did you stand up the rings -- I had a hard time doing just one ring, but you got two... :cool:

I have to imagine standing two up took some time

This is actually a very old approach to the ring shot; old enough that I stopped doing it about 3 years ago. The biggest reason being that it does take too long to set up. It is dependent on how flat or round the rings are. Or doing it in a Bible where the pages have some weight and compress against the rings a bit more.
