Played with Macro
Played around with the macro lens this afternoon. Not too pleased with the ring shots but that's what happens when I didn't have a vision to begin with. I have about 10 of them but most of them weren't very sharp. The actual focus point is lower than what I expected. I focused on my engagement ring rock, but as you can see from my second picture, the wedding band got the focus. I'm not sure if it's something i didn't do right, or something's wrong with the lens or the camera. I used a tripod.
Constructive criticism is welcome!

I happened to be working on a doll, so took some shots of her too:
I was trying to portray how much work it was to make her dress, but couldn't figure out a composition that tells a story and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. This one, for example, is way too busy for my taste. So I made it B&W to quiet it dwon:
I really like the contrast of two fabrics I picked for her:
