    Hi Ladies,

    So, I have a big favor to ask -- and am hoping some of you can help:-)

    Any of you who read my pro photographer review know we kind of got short-changed on the picture end of things:-)
    That is, our photographer missed some very key moments and pictures...one of those being a picture of our rings.

    I have pretty much finished designing our wedding album (on Lumapix Fotofusion) -- but NOT having a picture of our rings is really bothering my husband! (It bothers me too, but I'm surprised at how much it bothers him!:-))

    Sooooo, we are going to have a friend of ours who does photography as a hobby take pictures of our rings... We're hoping that with his lighting gear etc (he basically has a studio at his place) and with VERY tight, close shots, we can get a pic or two to include in the album (where it won't be noticeable they weren't taken in Mexico, lol:-)

    So, this is where the favor comes in...
    I want to show our friend what kind of pictures we want and need some examples to show him...
    I know I've seen GORGEOUS, kind of artsy shots of rings in flowers or bamboo or whatever...
    I googled "rings in flowers" -- but the images that came up were mostly pretty cheesey -- and I know beautiful (NOT chessey!) pictures of this exist!

    If any of you would mind posting any pics you have of your rings NOT on your hand, but displayed in another way, I would super appreciate it!!
    (or, you could e-mail them to me if you don't want them displayed for the world to see:-))

    Thanks in advance!
    Of course, any photogs on this site are welcome to post/send pics too:-)

      Go to the "Show Me The Ring" forum at Diamond Prices: Diamond Jewelry Facts, Diamond Tools and Consumer Reports Forum and you will see more ring photos than you can stand complete with instructions on how to take these types of photos. Good luck.

          Wow -- that's fabulous!
          What is the ring on/in...? Is it a rock...?
          Whatever it is -- it's cool:-)
          Thank you for posting!

            Thanks for the site! It looks like it'll take a little poking around to find the kind of pics I'm looking for, but a great resource:-)

            Also hoping more ladies post their pics here so I have them all in one place, lol:-)

                I would strongly suggest taking some time out to check our my future photographers blog- Elizabeth Medina Photography

                She has some amazing ring shots, some with flowers, different backgrounds, fabrics etc. She truly is the best IMO :)

                  ive got a couple but i need to get them on photobucket! ill try to add them in the next day or 2, hopefully its in time for what you need!

                  oh! also i just thought of something. it might be kind of silly, but you could put on your dress and hubby his wedding clothes, and then even the tight shots will have you in the background. ill have to show you what i mean when i post one of the pics i have, but its our two hands together cupping our 3 rings, and its taken close up, but in the background you can see my dress and his shirt that we are wearing, because we are holding the rings at waist level, if that makes sense?
