Made a light box to sell some items. Originally tried shooting a Speedlite through each side but it didn't give me the look I wanted. So I layed my westcott rapidbox on top and shot my flash through it. Here is the result.

Now that is one hell of a result considering the minimal kit used.
Fabulous!

Similar setup as some of the shots I have posted recently. Elinchron octa as main, two strip boxes for rim lighting. Little fill from paul buff medium softbox on my right. White card for more fill from right side. I think I should have taken out the white fill card and also flipped my medium SB into horizontal position and at lower position. Right now there is a difference in paper color at the bottom and I am not good in PS to fix it.

Getting ready to do a couple weddings next month, and I saw something similar with craft paper, so I figured I'd get some "quick and clean" lighting setup in. The craft paper was purchased in the US at AC Moore and is in their scrapbooking section. Flash used is the Neewer NW985 Speedlight set at 1/32 power on a mini tripod with a DIY Gary Fong made from drawer liner and Velcro. All other details in the metadata.

Rings are mine and my wife's and have nearly 20 years of wear on them.

I wanted to follow up with the real-world application. I photographed a wedding this past Friday, and while the bride was at the salon finishing up her hair and makeup, my second shooter and I headed to the hotel suite to shoot the dress and rings (with 10 minutes wasted on a deactivated key). The party arrived as I was finishing up with the dress and they were prepping for the ceremony. What took me about 30 minutes to piece together and shoot (a little longer than I had wanted to, but I wanted to make sure the lighting and settings were perfect) turned into what I am pleased with and will include in the final images of the day, and I spent about 5 minutes shooting stacked photos to get the perfect focus as well as to put together in Photoshop as a longer depth of field photo. I finished up with enough time to photograph preparations, poses with her party and some photos of just the bride, so it was not a total waste of time.

Along with my only decent macro lens (Tamron 28-75 f/2.8) I had macro tubes that allowed me to change aperture and get proper focus.

This question is out of curiosity only - I really like what you did with the rings. Great final result. However, for the amount of time that you put into it (30 minutes plus processing), how does that figure into the amount that you charged for the wedding? To me, it really seems like a lot of effort put into one photo.

Again, I am not in any way down-playing what you did, it is the balance of work versus reward.

Playing with gradient edge lighting on glass. I thought I'd take a photo of an oil lamp of mine to be different. In the BTS shot, you can see the two strip boxes aimed forward at a 45° angle and diffusers to give a gradient edge light. The diffuser on the left is too small and I need to get one the same size as the one on the right (as you're facing the lamp).

That's a tough question. Too many variables... what if this one photo is loved by numerous brides throughout his region and he books another 50 weddings? Just food for thought, but I see your point.

I know I definitely spent too much time, partly because I was having a bit of a focusing issue and couldn’t quite get it right. I know I also spent much less time to set up than when I first attempted it, and believe I’d be able to get it down quicker next time. But as you know with weddings, you get pulled away, which happened a couple of times while I was shooting the rings, but I’m not sure it was very long. Not only that, but I wanted something different than the traditional shots I always see with rings and there was down time as girls were getting dressed in the other room, so I didn’t miss any other photos.

Another thought is there are jewelry stores in my area that I may benefit from getting work from them, so who knows.

I'm impressed with the stand you put the lamp on. Not afraid it'll tip over?

I use an Avenger F301 Baby Wall Plate that attaches to a light stand where I use masking tape to secure the 12" acrylic 'stage'. As long as I place my subject near the center, there's not much chance of it tipping. For my 24" acrylic stages (black & white glossy), I just place those on my rolling cabinet you see on the left of the BTS shot above.

Here's the link to the wall plate if you're interested.
