Beautiful Diamond Photographs [Captured With PoS Camera]

A few days back, I decided to use my Canon camera for a “photo-shoot” of loose diamonds I have on hand. Being an amateur, I experimented with various compositions with the hope of capturing some beautiful diamond photographs.

Out of a hundred shots made, I’ve selected some of my favorite photos below. Feel free to give a critique or leave a comment on what you think.

My favorite shot occurred by accident when a curious ant happened to creep by.

How to Get Stunning Photos of YOUR Engagement Ring

Diamonds are notoriously hard to photograph because of their optics and facet reflections. As a consumer, I love to share stuff on social media especially when it comes to important moments like a wedding or an engagement ring.

Unless you are a professional photographer, it’s not that that straightforward to capture Instagram worthy images or great looking photos of your engagement ring. Here’s where great vendors like White Flash and High Performance Diamonds stand out.

With every engagement ring purchase, they actually take beautifully crafted images of your finished ring or jewelry item as a FREE value added service. This enables you to easily share them with friends or family on social networks.

Check out these amazing photographs of the actual rings that White Flash made and delivered to clients.

    AWESOME! These are really well taken pictures. It’s hard to believe they aren’t captured with a SLR camera. I attempted to shoot my engagement ring with my iPhone but I find it extremely hard to get things in focus.

    May I know the distance between the camera len and the diamonds?

    Thanks for the compliments so far.

    The distance is roughly 7-8 cm. I try to get as much distance as I can from the lens away from the diamond without sacrificing image quality. The reason is that the camera casts a “head and body” shadow in the diamonds when it gets too close. This will create dark and black reflections within the diamond which I think isn’t aesthetically pleasing.

    I am by no means a professional photographer and I simply experimented with the composition and settings. I actually shared what I did here:

    Please understand that I’m an amateur when it comes to photography and I did this photo shoot because I had nothing else better to do on a lazy Sunday.
