My name is Sam S.K Tan or normally known as S.K. I started wedding photography back in 2010. My style and approach is to tell a story of your wedding. We thrive on the emotions, feelings, moments and the atmosphere that's happening on your wedding day. We are not interested in pushing you to pose for us or fit a style that's not you.

The couple's wedding dinner venue was at Marriot hotel Singapore. After their 1st march in, I asked them for their engagement rings and went back out to shoot the an idea for an image. There wasn't much options around and I wanted something different. Then this idea of freezing water droplets and the ring together with controlled lighting came up. Luckily I had the whole team out on this wedding, one guy was holding the flash pointing directly downwards while another guy prepared to drop the rings that's in a cup filled with a little water and me preparing to push the shutter on my camera mounted on a tripod. It took us about 20+ shots to nail the shot we wanted. The couple has not seen this shot yet as this was taken very recently but I'm sure they'll love it.

The difficulty with a shot like this is you will need extra hands to help you out. I suggest using a tripod and light stand to minimize the amount of hands you will need.

For this photo, I used a Nikon D3 with a Tamaron 90mm Macro lens shot @ f/22, ISO 200 , 1/250th and wireless trigger for SB-900 @ manual mode GN 1/16 th or 1/8th.

The challenge here was capturing both rings in the frame, we did a pre focus manually before we dropped the rings. For metering, we just need to cut off the ambience light and we did a trial run by simply placing a hand in the frame to test the exposure. I used Photoshop CS6 to adjust the exposure, highlights, contrast and shadows to give it a clean black background and increase some sharpness.

I love and adore this shot because it's a team effort and the simplicity of it.
