Point and shoot fun. Was bored at work and I only keep my small Canon. Funny thing is it makes for a pretty good macro shooter.

Rules are...

They have to be shot in the Month of the assignment. (I'll let you slide, they are close and you didn't know)

Rule no 2. Don't take the exif data out of the pic. If I can't see when the shot was taken, I will delete them

Oh and I guess the pic should have something to do with the assignment title. :D

On a side note...

D70 at 800 ISO? I'm guessing you use something to clean a little noise up? There is no way my D80 would get down to 800 ISO that clean. What do you use and what is the process to get rid of noise? I know it can be done I just have never figured out how.

Noise shows up mostly in the shadows, so I use a combination of contrast adjustment and 'burn' tool in photoshop. I used to do the same thing in the darkroom in high school :D

Mine's no DSLR, just a nicer point and shoot. Fuji S7000. The super-macro mode lets you focus as close as 1 cm.

Here's a few more with some elements of previous assignments...

I dig macro photography for its ability to let me see things I couldn't with the naked eye... like the bouquet contained within a single zinnia bloom:

No DSLR photos here, I don't have a macro lens and most point-n-shoots have surprisingly good macro modes. My old Olympus is showing its age though, I found a bunch of dead pixels when looking at 100% views of these photos. :(

These were from a day in the butterfly pavilion at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens. The point-n-shoot camera was a lot easier to shove in the bugs' faces, especially when they were not right in front of me. Autofocus was sloooooow and cranky though.

Just for grins, I slapped my old 1.5x doubler on my Canon 450D DSLR behind a 17-70 Sigma lens last night and shot these images.

Setup consists of a handful of spider gears, tripod, kitchen table, blinds open to let in natural lighting, black book for back drop and a small piece of diamond plate used as a reflector to direct the natural lighting. Exposures vary from 5-15 seconds in AV mode.

I really dig the blue cast that post-sunset lighting provides.

There is something about the lighting, texture and composition that stirs a primal instinct inside of me.......like a surge of adrenaline, spinning tires, the whine of a blower, etc.....:dunno:

#5 is my new desktop image, enjoy.

To get real quality macro shots, you need a macro specific lens....there's a lot of ways to tweak and manipulate with combo hardware, but results will vary.
