Here is a photography related non-photography entry. My favourite lens is now immortalized permanently as a ring.

Some behind the scenes design process: it did involve photography with macro reproduction. I first photographed the lens at varied angles to overcome cylindrical deformation. I then pieced together the artwork into a flat shape in photoshop before taking it into illustrator to vectorize, clean up, create the depth of field lines and compose the final art for the production file.
The ring is made by my talented and creative friend and fellow OCA classmate Shannon at Cynosure Jewelry Design Studio.
