Kate set up this shot by drop­ping the rings into a glass of ‘cham­pagne’ in front of a glitzy lamp (it was ac­tu­ally fizzy wa­ter, but the warmth of the tung­sten light made it look like cham­pers). I set f/9 at ISO400, to en­sure most of the ring was sharp, which gave a shut­ter speed of 1/125 sec – just fast enough to shoot hand­held on the 105mm macro. A test shot, with the nee­dle at zero, looked too bright and lacked sparkle, so I stopped down to 1/160 sec – this deep­ened the shad­ows, and stopped the high­lights from blow­ing.
