    Default Newbie 1st try on macro


    Just came back from a short trip to Genting. 1st try on macro with my S3 IS.

    The photo was with ZERO PP except crop to size.
    Camera: Canon S3 IS
    Exposure: 1/640 sec
    Aperture: f/3.5

    I need C&C here. How is the composition and exposure? Are the weeds behind distracting? If I crop it in landscape mood, will it be better?

    Thank you in advance.

    Rest of the series are here below: -

    For macro... You really must get up close to the flower (close to your nose)... Depending what is your focused subject.

    Keep Shooting more and custom your own shooting style.
    :blah: D80, Sigma 18-50/f2.8, 70-200/f2.8 (HSM).

    I afraid this is not macro eventhough the button on your camera might be switch to macro mode. The sudject is out of focus. Take a look at the macro section here to see the difference. Soon you will get the BBB virus and would have to upgrade all your gears.

    Too far to be a macro. Try getting nearer to the subject?
