Well, I’ve fallen in love with my newest plaything – my 100mm lens! When my friend Kira, from Kira Nicole Photography, was upgrading her glass, I jumped at the opportunity to add this hardworking lens to my bag. Buying used gear can sometimes feel a little risky, but since I knew the owner and how well she takes care of her stuff, I felt totally comfortable snagging this lens used at a great price.
Naturally, I pulled off my engagement ring and plopped down on my kitchen island and snapped away! I wore these pearls on my wedding day, and the mirrored tray and cork were simple nearby props. I loved getting to play around with the manual focus, and exploring just how close I can get to my subject, something that’s a limitation with my other prime lenses. I also realized just how badly my ring needs to be cleaned… oops! Let’s ignore the dust and fuzzies, shall we?
