I wanted to try out doing macro shots and my engagement ring was the first thing I saw. I used the 450D kit lens for this one, it's not a macro lens, but gotta go with what I have :)
I also took a hobby assignment to photo five most important possessions. This would be one of them.
Shot inside a cardboard box, with an on-camera 430 flash, pointed at the back of the box. Ring is laying on white poster board.
