    Was playing around with my cheap manual ring light and the 12-50EZ. I do not have backgrounds or a studio setup so I used spot metering and some exposure compensation to black out the background. I also did some work in LR knocking off some reflections. This is one of my first tries with my EM-5 using some lighting techniques it worked pretty good actually better than my skills allow.

    Here are a few shots the last one is in the Macro mode the others are not. Plus some terrible shots of the setup.

    You say this like you are apologizing. You have nothing to apologize for!

    The people who need to apologize are the people who say "I can't do that" and, instead of viewing that as an opportunity, just sit on their hands. There is nothing wrong with your images and I'm sure you would say that you learned a lot by setting up and taking this series. Your next series will be more complex -- maybe 3 dimensional lighting, maybe involving pursuit of an independent-minded bug, or chasing the perfect image of a flower that's waving in the breeze. So --- congratulations on both your attitude and your results!
