Diamonds are a girl’s best friend….or so it is said. And, if you’re from Long Island New York (or a New York lady in general) than you always try your best to sparkle, dazzle and shine. So, why should your ring be any different, especially since it’s a gem (for a Gem) that you’ve waited for, for quite a long time…so taking the perfect picture of your picture perfect precious stone, especially if you’re sharing on social media, is an artform. Here are some expert tips and trick to make sure your snapshots sparkle and shine.
LIGHTS, Camera, Action: The perfect picture means picture perfect lighting. According to experts, set the mood by finding the line of a shadow then stand at its edge in the shade. Overcast days are better for taking pictures and on sunny days make sure to make the shade your favorite friend. For that extra “glam” factor on your diamond shine a bright light down on it.
Give Your Ring Its Just “Props”: While you DO want your ring to take center stage and not upstage it by extemporaneous clutter, you DO want to add some extra ambiance. Consider a backdrop that is pretty and meaningful like someplace you got engaged or a sentimental card or photo…just make sure the backdrop you choose offers subtle enhancements to your ring and not bold distractions detracting from it.
Buff Up: Make sure to clean your ring before photographing it. The newer the ring the less likely it will need a professional cleaning. Simply buff and shine with a cloth then snap away.
Hash It Out: Remember “the devil is in the details” and you’re social media followers are not going to “just” want to see your bedazzling bauble, but are likely looking forward to a “back story”…so use hashtags and captions to capture the essence of how it happened.
Mix It Up: Experts suggest using Hollywood style photojournalism techniques to take a truly professional photo. Alternate between and mix up wide, narrow and close up shots to capture the whole story from different angles (pardon the pun). Wide shots can best be achieved via the use of a selfie stick held horizontally, normal shots, well, they’re just self explanatory and close ups require tight and narrow shots of your bling.
