Time for a New Lens Me Thinks

New 'Over the Rainbow' necklace shot before 'The Incident'
So I was doing some product photography today and I was pretty excited as I had some cool new designs I was looking forward to listing. I am still getting used to my new tripod and pushed a button I shouldn't have. Next thing I know, the quick release was disengaged and my camera goes plumeting to the ground. It fell only about 2 feet, but it must have hit the lens just on the right spot as now it makes a very sad sound when it is trying to focus and the focus ring doesn't move any more. I was pretty bummed and I still had a few photos to shoot, not to mention all the other photos I will need to shoot in the future. Sigh.

I am going to check out my warranty as the camera and lens aren't that old. Either that or I can try and get it repaired. I was thinking about getting a new macro lense anyway...


  1. Ahhh...I hate to hear that! Sounds like a rotten day!

    The Over the Rainbow necklace photo is beautiful!

  2. Thanks - I think I am finally figuring out the style and composition that I like!

    Sent the lens and body off for assessment and repair today - hopefully it's not out of action for too long!
