Oh, I Can Do Better, Even for Macro

OK, I’ll admit it was a great macro opportunity. The best part, I didn’t have to get down on the ground and stick my ass up in the air to take it. So I decide to get in the swing of things and work the subject a little better. So here’s my first click.

This movie requires Flash Player 9


The 1st thing I did was improve the background. In the last blog the dark background didn’t work for the conditions, snow. So I moved so I had a white background. Next, from the 1st to 2nd photo here, I titled the camera from plum to the earth to plumming the subject to the frame.

Yeap, still shoot in HSC mode with AWB A6 to warm up the leaves. I’m only shooting at f/8 to maximize sharpness on the hoar frost while not pulling in the background.

And lastly, I went vertical with the camera still plummed to the subject and not the earth. And for Moose, it’s not a half bad macro shot.
