Lights and Shadows...

I have been experimenting with lights and shadows - camera set on Manual Mode.  It's addictive!

The hardest part of setting up the photo shoot was getting the ring to stand on end.  I finally resorted to using a tiny bit of double stick tape to hold it in place.

That's gorgeous! I love hearts (even when they are "set-up" hearts! This is a stunner. And the tape is a terrific tip.
