Well the only way to improve is to shoot MORE. So I started shooting the engagement ring during every engagement session. Some photographers would say this is a waste of time because they are going to get shots of their rings on the wedding day. Well, I disagree. This was my time to improve my ring shot skills! When my couples are changing into outfit #2… I take the ring and I start shooting! What else am I going to do when they’re changing?! I might as get acquainted with my 100mm macro IS! (Which I highly recommend!) I’m happy to say that the phrase “practice makes perfect” really is a legit saying. The more you do something, the more you will understand it and master it. Now I haven’t mastered ring shots… NOT. EVEN. CLOSE. However, I have improved since 2010 and here are some favorites from 2011! Enjoy and happy Tuesday!
