It's so much fun to play around with this camera! Ring shots used to be my nemesis but now I have about 50 of these buggers:) I think I even got some 'flare' in one of these shots, right?

I need to remember to clean my ring before I do shots like this again, though. And yes, those are little speed bumps on the inside of my set. I have them so the ring doesn't spin around my finger since my knuckle is ginormous from a previous break during high school sports. Quite elegant, no?

  11. Love your photos, quick question, do you photoshop the pics before you post? They always have such great contrast. Thanks!

  14. Thanks, loves! I'm glad you like them.

    To answer the questions:

    I only have the kit lens and the 55-250 mm telephoto lens that I have yet to really use. So all of these images [and 99% of my others] are taken with the kit lens. I wish I had a macro lens but alas, I do not.

    Yes, I always touch up my photos before posting them to flickr. Sometimes it's nothing more than a quick bump to the contrast or a little curves adjustment....but I very rarely leave one straight out of the camera. I'm picky like that:)
