I’m working on learning macro photography a little better. With a point and shoot camera (Oh…how I long for a DSLR), the settings are challenging. But as they say…practice makes perfect.
Anyway, these types of shots are getting better, no?
I have 8 baby tomatoes in my garden. I loved the way this macro shot came out…with the different levels of focus and perspective. Various leaves that are close and up front are blurred, but the focus of the area is exactly where I hoped it would be. Miracles do happen! LOL Actually…how many times have I tried to do a macro shot–with a point and shoot–and the focus area is anywhere but where I want it to be! So…when it happens, it’s still a revelation.
But still…you can see the spiny parts of the stem; you can see the raindrops on the tomatoes; the shiny reflection on the leaf on the right, yet the top leaves are a soft blur. The ground is a soft out-of-focus. What fun to be able to finally make this kind of shot work!
Apologies..I know I’ve posted a lot of rose pictures this spring…but I love them. And we waited through a long dark winter, and now…now we have flowers to photograph! So, I photograph them.
