With the weather just being horrible around the North part of Ohio, it was time to practice and play around with some new ideas for ring shots for this wedding season. This time I played around with water. I was doing two different types of shots.
With the above picture, I went with a two light setup. The key light using Godox AD200 with a grid just a little off camera left and using another Godox AD200 with a grid and also using a purple gel that is behind the rings. All are using Magmod. By the way, I love the quick work that Magmod allows me. If you have not used it and you are a wedding photographer, you should seriously look at it. Ok back to the picture. Got the light the way I wanted, next was to spill water behind the rings. I started hitting the rings but did not like the outcome. I preferred behind the rings. The camera was on a tripod, and I was using a Macro Lens. Took about 5 shots before I got the one I liked. Next was to clean up my mess and try another setup.
Setup was the same as the above. This time I used spray and used a spray to cause the effect of what looks like stars. I liked it but felt it needed more. Out came the Christmas lights and placed then about 5 ft behind the rings causing the Bokeh you see in peach color.
Two different setups that took not much time at all. Two different looks for a couples wedding rings. But most notable about practicing, two different idea’s and understanding the outcome so that you maybe get even more creative,
