With this ring....

This past weekend, I had some free time with my new camera. Just me and the Nikon. Oh it was blissful! I am overly obsessed with it at the moment. I decided to play around with our wedding rings a little. I love ring shots and was so pleased with the ones that our photographers (AshleyK) got. Here's just a couple of my faves - well more than a couple, but I couldn't decide which ones I liked the best!

{one of my favorites...so simple}
{rings on the end of my calla lillies}{more flower/ring shots}
{m&m's from the candy bar}

With our one year anniversary quickly approaching us, I figured I would try out this whole ring shot thing. How hard can it be, right? Well, it was a little tougher than I thought but after several tries I was able to get some descent shots. I used a Bible and Beau's ring at first. I love how his ring shadows a heart onto the pages. I decided to try it with mine too, but I love the simplicity of his ring alone. This was pretty easy. Once you get the hang of it and get the rings to stay in place, you're good to go! I turned my flash off in order to get the shadowing affect and then doctored it a bit in Photoshop so they didn't look too dark.

I'm sure I'll spend this next weekend taking more pictures! I keep telling Beau that I need a new "subject" to take pics of. Daisy is filling up my folders! I need to borrow someones baby :) HA

I love the one in the bible where you can see your ring standing up and his encircling yours. Pretty! Have you found a super cute case yet for your camera? I'm having a really hard time finding one that is acceptable to bring out with me to dinner...

Very cute pictures! If I had a baby, I'd let you take their pictures...you know, since we're in the same town and all!

I love the photos in the bible that reflect a heart! Great job!

I just got a Canon XSI SLR and loving it. My children keep asking for their photo to be taken because the photos are so much better with my new lens and camera - wow!

Blessings and Happy Anniversary!
