Engagement Ring to Warm Her Heart
Valentine is but a day and the chocolates are gone time to celebrate you engagement with a Solitaire so bright, it outshines a star for all eternity and captures loves heart.
It has been many years since I have photographed diamonds for Edinburgh jeweller Hamilton and Inches. I had a very short time to do this project and a difficult subject, but as a wedding photographer I thought that is good to be associated with a retailer of beautiful engagement and wedding rings
Although the concept is a simple one, chocolates tray empty except a stunning round brilliant cut Solitaire ring. The set up was rehearsed before arriving at the store and lighting was a mix of flash and long exposure using an led torch to give that bust of light. I used Nikon's creative lighting system for ease and portability on location. I use this system on weddings for speedy set ups.
Finally I combined the basic image with the flare of light and blended with red and purple colour effects for the background.
This ring is a 1.65 ct diamond set in platinum valued at £27,500 for someone very special.
Congratulations on your engagement
Special thanks to Stephen Paterson and his team at Hamilton and Inches for their assistance.
