I totally nerd-ed out today and went crazy taking artsy engagement ring photos of my…
totally fake, $8 Claire’s ring.
I took a digital photography class this semester to keep me at full time (and for some fun), but our final was today, so we had to hand back in our amazing Canon DSLRs 🙁
I was hoping SO would have proposed before the end of the semester so that I could take some stellar ring photos, but alas, he did not.
So I did what any normal waiting chick would do… hahaha….
I can’t believe I am even sharing all this with you, but hell. Why not??? 🙂
I hope you enjoy my “non-ring” aka “soft-core ring” porn ;)…
I guess it doesn’t hurt to get some photo practice in, does it?? 😉 hehehe..snort…

@Katnisseverdeen: Thanks! 🙂 I took some more pics on some of my houseplants’s leaves, some wine bottle corks, etc. but I didn’t want to go overboard on Weddingbee with my “lame-ring” when I’m still waiting! hahaha 😛
@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie: Yes! I’ve had so much fun this semester in this class. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures, but you can do so much more when you have more control of the camera!
PS I did at one point tell SO that if he doesn’t propose before the end of the semester, then he owes me a camera. Haha. Win-win 😉

@missfrillycoat: Aww thanks 🙂 I love my new nailpolish color. It’s called “Tip Your Waitress” lol. I think it’s a new brand at CVS called Spoiled by Wet-n-Wild.
This was totally a last minute idea for me to do these today before the final, but I am glad I did! Again, good practice for the real deal 😉

Kudos for your photography skills 🙂

Ahem. You are not alone. That is all I will say.
But you were “building your portfolio”, right? Photographers sometimes will get someone to play dress-up in a thrift store wedding dress just to practise, so why shouldn’t you practise with your Claire’s ring? 😉

I was thinking of doing exactly the same 😀 !!!
My SO and I kind of already “agreed” that I wouldn’t be getting any e-ring nor wedding band when everything will take an official turn (he sees them as a waste of £££….)…. Fortunately I’ve got a collection of cheap and not-so-cheap bling offered by Mum to quench my ring thirst!
