Wow. I'm crazy late with this week's edition of Small Snapshots!
The theme this week is macro, and I'm the one who suggested it, so the fact that I've been slacking on posting this is pretty bad... Clearly, I didn't think the time of year through very well when I suggested macro. Because I'm a sucker for macro shots of flowers, and winter in Canberra is hardly conducive to the presence of flowers *sigh*
Still, I made the most of what was in the garden, and came up with these:
|Who doesn't love a spathiphyllum in their living room?|
|Some kind of mysterious berry thing in the garden|
And now for a confession: I really hate that I can't seem to take decent macro photos with my SLR. You CAN take macro photos to some extent. They're just not as tight as I'd like them to be. I had to use my old crappy Olympus point and shoot for these. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with these - the macro capacity on my Olympus is pretty awesome. I'm just having a whinge about the limitations of my SLR lenses!
You know what? I just looked back through my archives and last year was able to take a ton of good macro shots with my SLR.
|See?! I'd had my SLR for about 2 weeks when I took this.|
Clearly I'm blaming my lenses for something that's entirely my own fault... I think my pending unemployment might be the perfect opportunity for me to kick my arse into gear on this!!
