How To – Creative Wedding Ring Shots
By Wedding Photographer Jason Giordano
Always looking for new angles and fresh looks. I’ve been concentrating on the wedding rings lately. Having shot thousands of weddings it can become difficult to get out of your comfort zone and you can really fall into a pattern if you are not careful. Wedding Photography is a great outlet if you really enjoy people and have a knack for anticipating what people are about to do. I’m very well-known in the industry for my wedding photojournalism approach. What most don’t know is how much I enjoy the creative side as well. There is always time to do something different.
The Rose & Wedding Rings
The Rose is fairly simple. All about the lighting really. Here I stood with the window at me back during sunset. The room was fairly dark and a few candles were lit in the distance. I used a 105 macro lens @ f5.6 iso 800. The difficult part was handholding the Rose in one hand and the camera in the other. Keeping from shaking either hand was tough but I managed.

The above photo of the wedding rings was taken with the same lens same settings. Candles again in the background but what you can’t see is the LED light that I use for videos! The LED light has a set of barn doors and is placed directly above the rings.
