Still life of earrings taken at the Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne

I shot this wedding detail image of earrings pinned to a champagne bottle while covering the bride getting ready portion of wedding day coverage.  This wedding took place at the Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne FL

When photographing wedding details such as wedding rings, earrings and other small items, I strive to create images that are more interesting, ingenious and thought provoking.  

While it's very nice to place a diamond wedding ring or earrings on a flower I feel that this sort of shot is not only beautiful but also unique.

When photographing a wedding I always spend time photographing all the wedding details.  Wedding detail photography includes not just photographing the earrings but also photographing other important wedding related items. Some key wedding detail shots include, The dress hanging on a fancy hanger, The wedding rings, the brides shoes, brides and the brides headpiece.  Your photographer should be on the lookout for all the wedding related items. 

It's important to ask the bride if there are any personal items that should be photographed.

I recently photographed a wedding in which one of the personal wedding detail photos included a special pin which the brides grandfather received in world war 2.  

For this photograph I used my Nikon D3s with a 24-120 zoom lens.  I shot this telephoto because I wanted to throw the background out of focus.  I also used a white fill card which bounced additional light onto the diamonds giving them extra sparkle.

I shot this in the Camera Raw format.  I normally shoot in camera raw because of the additional control that camera raw allows.
