I've tried several times to take pictures of wedding rings up close (I do not have a macro lens). I'm having a hard time focusing on the ring and it takes forever for the lens to lock in. Then I don't think they come out as clear as they should. I also tried the famous heart light with the ring in the bible. (Sorry, I know everyone does this-so I had to as well). I find it IMPOSSIBLE to get the rings to stand up in the middle of the bible. I've tried the 2 sided tape and it just didn't work. I ended up GLUING (yikes) my ring to the page. Maybe my ring is just too heavy. Another thing I was trying to accomplish was to get some type of glare or sparkle from the diamonds. It was very hard to do. Maybe I should have cleaned them before taking the pictures, but I would think I would see the glare from the light bouncing off the ring and take the picture only for it not to show up in the end. Let me know what I can do to improve these and any tips would be appreciated.
