Wednesday: More shiny objects

Yesterday I said that my old ring almost fits inside the new one. You can see that here. But just for fun, I tried something different in doing this photo. I cut a hole in a piece of 8x10 copier paper, poked the lens of the Canon A590IS through it, and shot a couple of photos with the paper diffusing the flash. It looks much better than the harsh light from the on-camera flash, though I had to bump it up 2 stops. This would be perfect for photographing some other small, shiny objects - like old Campy parts out in the garage.

You know where this is heading!
