Day 299 of 365
A couple of weeks ago a couple of my coworkers were trying to take some photos of one of their rings using a small point and shoot and were talking about how bad the photos looked. I mentioned that I was a photographer and would be happy to take a few shots for her and today we finally had the chance to do so. I brought my camera, macro lens, black fabric and a couple of mirrors into the office this morning. It was a nice sunny day and we had a table right next to a south facing window so was able to use natural lighting. I used the mirrors to provide extra lighting where needed and they worked wonderfully. I didn't feel like lugging my tripod around so used the back of a chair for stability. I took some shots at different angles I liked this one the most because you can really see the details.
300mm macro setting, 1/320 sec, f/8, ISO 100
