Ring in Book – Heart Shadow

Trying to get the heart shaped shadow from a ring in a book. I found some interesting issues that you need to do deal with.

1. The book has to be able to stay open on it’s own. Small books don’t work well. It also helps to not have a reflective book.
2. It helps if the ring isn’t completely top heavy, bands work the best or you can use a little bit of adhesive to keep the ring up right. ‘
3. Diffuse the light.

I used my D300s with one speedlight and on camera commander to handle the remote flash work. Here is the lighting setup that I used:


Still working on it, but here is one of the best attempts that came out of my shooting this morning:
