But wait...check THIS out...
Dot Ring and Koa Ring SUPER close-up!
This camera + macro lens even makes my not-so dainty hand look halfway decent with that short depth of field (the blurry part in the background)...
Man-hands no more!
All of these were taken while I was sitting on my couch with one daylight balanced fluorescent bulb pointed at my TV tray in front of me. For real. With the right shutter speed, aperture setting and a steady grip, any light source will work. No kidding!
Yep. I'm in love. With a camera. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Jealous? hee hee! ;)
I'm working on some tips on understanding what all those crazy numbers and "f-stops" mean that I'll share here sometime soon. Until then, you can always contact me to take a class on Small Object Photography if you're in the Seattle Area :)
