Congratulations! You’re engaged to the man of your dreams and it’s time to show off your bling.
We love seeing our customers post their ring selfies on social media. It makes us feel honoured and grateful that we are a part of their marriage journey.
The diamond’s sparkling beams refracting like the sun are quite mesmerizing. Our customers’ rings are so special we love it when they immortalize all that glistening glory.
But, snapping a pic in a rushed fashion for the obligatory pic is so expected, right? That’s why we have a few tips for you to remember to capture your engagement ring in the best light possible.
So, make sure your mani is point and follow these simple Insta tips to nail the perfect #RingSelfie.
The right lighting is everything
An iPhone plus a dimly lit room will result in a grainy photo. But, an iPhone and a window with plenty of natural light is the easiest setup you can have for a beautiful ring selfie. Indoor fluorescents and yellow bulb are no good for bright and sparkly photos of your bauble. Natural sunlight is the key for a stunning and memorable Instagram photo using just your iPhone.
Find the best angle
What is the one feature of your ring that you like the most? Is it the centre stone? Or the unique setting perhaps? Find the best angle so you can capture the most beautiful qualities of your ring. Generally, an overhead shot highlights the shape of your ring. Just remember to skip the flash because it can wash out the colour of your ring.
Go the distance
A stunning backdrop plus a beautiful engagement are a match made in heaven. If your partner happened to propose in a gorgeous location like the Insta post shown above, it’s the perfect opportunity to snap a photo. Just make sure your hands are prepped – meaning moisturized and your nails are trimmed.
Use a prop
Adding a prop like a nice clutch or resting your hand on your fiance’s hand will make your hand look more relaxed and flattering. Instead of shooting straight on, a prop can add to a beautiful composition.
Fix before posting
There’s no shame in using photo editing apps like Photoshop Express, VSCO Cam, or Afterlight. With these, you can experiment with cropping, contrast, saturation and sharpness to achieve the perfect selfie.
