My New Toy

For Christmas I received a new macro lens for my camera.  I needed it to take close ups of my jewelry.
(BTW, if you are looking for camera or lens info make sure you check out the link for Ken Rockwell.  He and my friend LizNoel have been a source in info for me. 

I am having so much fun playing with it.  I'm finding a few things as I'm playing with it:
  • The color is soooo sharp.  
Another shot of my fave at the 360 Mall
  • I don't know what to do with myself because I use the auto-focus feature & I don't have to turn the ring on the lens.  
  • It is really close up.  I have to scoot way back sometimes if I'm trying to take pictures of things other than my jewelry.

Here are a few jewelry shots
