Ring Box

Dotun helped set this up (and, as you'll see in the shot I post tomorrow, pretty much showed me how to "see" rings).  Certainly an important shot for any wedding book, I've found it's really hard to get the right focus on the diamond to really make the main stone pop.

Any suggestions?

Nice one Michael - how about focusing a laser pointer on the diamond - you know, the kind of thing used at Powerpoint presentations.
Michael Benjamin Studios: Do you think laser pointers would work? I'll give it a try. Can't hurt...
could always get as much detail in the shot and make the dof up in pping or is that cheating lol, looks great to me m8smile
Michael Benjamin Studios: Thanks, Tim
And Ewa, as it seems you've either deleted your comment or Shutterchance didn't like the critique, I greatly appreciate the honest comment.

Something to the effect of "light box, lit from side/taken from above."

I just found a DIY lightbox instruction video. I gave it a try, but need more lights. And a macro lens. And it's not something I could bring on wedding shoots. But otherwise, having a great time playing with it!

Thanks for the comments, Ewa. Much appreciated (not here just for kudos. I do like the honest/constructive critique as it helps me learn).
