Thread: Wedding/Engagement Bands

  1. #1

    Wedding/Engagement Bands

    These are my wife's... I thought I'd get some practice in before the wedding season kicks back in.

    Here's the 1st try, notice the reflections (very distracting)


    To get rid of the reflections, I thought it'd be a good idea to make a light "box"...so I taped 5 sheets of paper together like this:



    And I got the following result:


    If you look really close to the near side of the wedding band, you'll see me where I stuck the camera/lens in to take the shot. I'm sure I could clone it out with more time. The whole set up/shoot/processing took no more than 20 min.

    Hope this is helpful, at least you can see what a few pieces of paper can do for shooting shiny objects with some tape and 5 sheets of paper
