This photo of Scout was the very first photo I took with the camera, after I put in the battery. Why is this "about time"? Because after saving my money for months in order to buy this camera, my car's front end needed to be completely replaced, taking all the cash. But because of raises, no bills, and Bush's reparation payment, I was able to get the camera and the software to support it (Mac OS X Leopard, iLife '08 (including the newest iPhoto) and Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac).
I have found that I do macros by simply standing as close as possible. The camera does the rest. This is a photo of buds on my kitchen lilac bush.
I'm thinking that my zoom photos of beavers and birds will be a thing of the past until I am able to buy a zoom lens. Until then, I will carry both the Canon and the Kodak. The macro seems okay at this point but may not be adequate with bugs. I'll also need a safer tripod and a flash attachment. And a case. Extra battery, filters. Oh, more storage . . . . . (are my children listening?)
These photos will open full-size in a new window when clicked.
