Whether you’ve just gotten engaged and can’t wait to show off your new ring or suspect a proposal is imminent, it’s important to know how to take a great ring selfie and boast on your new bling!
Here are some tips on how to perfectly capture a stunning engagement ring selfie:
Good Lighting is Key
Having good lighting is the main rule of thumb for pretty much any photo, but it is especially important when you are trying to capture a picture of your diamond. Being outside in natural lighting is the most ideal option, however, if you’re unable to do so, or really want to take the photo indoors you should try to take the photo near a bright window. If the room is dim or has fluorescent or yellow bulbs the photo will likely turn our blurry and grainy. Natural sunlight is the way to go with diamonds. Also, don’t forget to pay attention to shadows when taking pictures so they don’t detract from your ring.
Know Your Ring
Everyone’s engagement ring is different. Just because your girlfriend was able to take a stunning photo of her ring from a certain angle doesn’t mean you’ll have success capturing an identical photo. Try taking photos at different angles until you determine the one that highlights it best.
