We know that there are varying feelings out there when it comes to posting pictures of your new left-hand bling on Facebook—some do it as a wordless way of announcing their engagement; some feel a little more private about posting it for all to see—and that’s fine. But regardless of whether you’re snapping a photo of your new rock to post for all 593 of your besties to see or not, chances are pretty much 100 percent that you are, in fact, going to snap one. Especially for female family and friends who don’t live near you, their demands to see the ring are pretty much a guarantee.
That’s why we thought this cute little step-by-step guide on HuffPo on how to shoot a pretty shot of your engagement ring—conveniently, specifically with your phone—was so helpful. It’s five quick steps to a gorg shot of your ring—and as a bonus, they threw in a slideshow of reader ring shots, because, let’s be honest, they’re fun to look at even when you don’t know the person.
How do you feel about where shots of your ring do and do not belong? Do you just text them to family and friends, or did you post on Facebook?
