I luurve my macro lens

August 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Not a lot to say in this post, but I have been wanting to put up a number of pics taken with the macro setting on my camera. I get a bit wrapped up and can spend an hour in the garden squatting among the plants trying to get as close as possible. I received my current Camera (a Cannon Elf) as a gift from my parents - birthday before last, and now I think I have to invest in more disk space. I’ve gone a bit snap happy.

    Macro photos are always fun and often artsy, but be careful focusing. The extremely shallow depth of field will show only a small portion of your image in focus. Use a high numeric f/stop for a larger depth of field, or be sure your point of interest is in focus.
