Four Megapixel Macro Monday

cn

 

I took this shot with The Bride’s Canon SD300 using the manual settings mode. Once the exposure setting was set I turned my attention to the white balance (WB). The AWB was not at all accurate so I fiddled around with the WB settings till I felt the capture was more representative of the actual thing. This was hard since the camera has a smallish two-inch screen with no view finder. Other than the small screen and no viewfinder (which no small compact has). Also since this camera came out 2004 or 2005 I am even more impressed by its drive-ability. It is shots like this that show why I love her little camera.

G3ing It

I recently acquired a Canon PowerShot G3 for a song. I had a lovely little Nikon CoolPix 4600 but half the manual functions stopped working. I gave it to my sister-in-law and it still makes a great every day point and shot.

But I like to dabble with manual controls so I turned to the G3 when I could not find another 4600. Here are a few pictures I took today on my way home from work. I am experimenting with macro photography taken with the zoom only. Here are a few attempts plus one. Enjoy!
