Over the holidays, I rented a few lenses to try out so I have an idea of the kind of glass I want to eventually invest in. They came in right before Seth and I left to go visit family for Christmas. The 35mm stayed on my camera pretty much the whole time we were on vacation, but I never got a chance to spend much time trying out the 60mm. Now, I know that’s not the most popular macro lens, but it was the one most within my budget for now. I sadly had to ship both lenses back to California yesterday, but I got to spend the last few days using the 60 to practice my ring shots.
I used my own engagement ring since I never really got good shots of it before. Here are a few of my favorites 🙂
If you’re interested in checking out lenses before you buy, I HIGHLY recommend BorrowLenses.com! They have great customer service and have the lowest prices I’ve found so far. If you like them on Facebook or join their mailing list, you’ll receive promo codes regularly. That’s how I got to keep these ones for an extra week for free!
