- This little hand belongs to my 3 year old grandson Robert. As you can tell they are busy little hands. He was playing with a small patch of sunlight that was landing on the dinner table. In the evening the sun sets fast and the patch of light was there one minute and gone the next. In a few years when I look back at this picture it will seem that he grew up just as fast. Canon Powershot SD1100 IS, 1/250 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 400, 40mm equivalent focal length in digital macro mode.
The afternoon sun cast an interesting light on this old and rusty bicycle sprocket. Canon PowerShot SD1100, 1/50 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 200, 40mm equivalent focal length in macro mode. Image converted to black & while using Silver Efex Pro in Photoshop Elements 6. Small point and shot cameras do a remarkably fine job with macro photos. The macro mode on the camera just tells the auto focus to look for the focus point much closer than in normal mode. Give yours a try, get close and I think you will be surprised by the results.
Play-Doh is so much fun, especially when the colors are all mixed together. Canon PowerShot SD1100, 1/50 sec @ f2.8, ISO 400 in digital macro mode. This is my first blog photo from my ultra small Canon SD1100 in "Bohemian Brown". So far five Canon cameras and one Blackberry have been used to take the 253 pictures posted to this blog.
