Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2015 Week 42 and new camera accessory

My new flash ring for my camera.  Photo taken with my iPhone 5C.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge (COB) is all about those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.  We’ve all taken them and like them, because we just can’t hit delete and get rid of them.  There is never a theme to this challenge, so what is an odd ball is all up for you to discover and photograph.  I hope that you have a lot of fun!  To read more about Odd Ball photos click here.

My Entry for the Week

I got a new toy for my camera this week.  A Neewer Ring 48 (photo above).  It is a hot shoe connected light.  The light actually stays on rather than being a flash.  It can be turned on and off when not in use.  It has a choice of turning half of the ring off at a time so if you are a few feet from your subject it can really change your lighting dramatically.  There is also an electrical plug so you don’t always have to run it on batteries.  It only costs $35 and I’m impressed with it.  I’ve only used it a little bit, but for what I want it seems to work quite well.

Here is my entry for this week.

A small Quan Yin statue in my office.  Size is fairly close to a normal human hand.


Sun was beginning to set and lighting was getting dim.  I took this outside with my flash.101815odd_1

    1. My office isn’t lit well under any conditions, so I figured I needed one. This is good for 20′. My Sony doesn’t have a flash which is usually okay since I am usually taking photos outside. But on winter or rainy days it will be nice to have the flash.


    1. Because it was so hot and dry this summer, raking season started early this year. Typically Oregonians don’t water their lawns. We have green lawns in the winter months.


  1. I love your Quan Yin statue! I’ve got a couple of them in my office but yours is much prettier. I’m also envious of your flash ring. After reading about them, I wanted to get one but my camera doesn’t have the thingy it needs to attach to. A hot shoe? The lighting on the gloves and hose thingy looks so natural! (Can you tell I’m having a foggy brain day?) 🙂


  2. great shots see an dhow do you lik your new flash ring of your iPhone. I just upgraded to the new iPhone 6s and really like it especially the camera.


  3. What joy getting a new camera piece to play with. I think I would like it as I hate the flash I have – it totally drains all colour out of the picture.
    Your entries this week are great especially the Quan Yin statue. Great that it is life size – that is taking having someone in the palm of your hand very literally.


  4. That is a great photo of your Quan Yin statue. What an interesting lighting tool for your camera. That sounds very interesting because it lets you adjust the lighting somewhat.
