A few lighting tips on Macro Ring Photography.

I wanted to take some photos for a friend’s business, they make rings out of rocks. So I decided to take some Macro Ring Photography style photos. It’s a great way to show off some of the details and for these rock-based rings the details and textures really came out!

On each of these, I tried to switch up the lighting angle. The first two are from about a 45-degree angle.

this next photo is from more of a straight-on angle and I was a little bit above looking a little bit down. I felt like this created a fairly hard light and made it a little unclear as to what the photo was of.


This last setup I think ended up being my favorite, It provided clear light on the rings fitting, and the texture. It also provided a lot of texture for the rock.
