Excellent macro! I posted some new pics for you. Have a great weekend!

Thanks, Chet! Here's the funny thing - I shot 8 closeups of this dumb pine cone and only this one was presentable. I just don't get the macro thing...

You do a fantastic job! I'm desperate for a better camera with lenses. Something to work for.

Diane MP on July 8, 2012

I don't have any lenses except what my Fujifilm came with. It's a relatively cheap camera and I mostly have it on Auto. That seems to work better for macros than if I manually set it on the cute little Tulip. I don't know, maybe it's the other way around... I need camera lessons. I could start with the owner's manual, but I ignore those and just start using things. Self-defeating?

I finally got a book on composition at work. It had some good tips, but I mostly enjoy experimenting.

For me, it's just easier to mess around (and mess up) than read about how to do something with equipment of some sort. Good thing I'm not a surgeon, huh?

You're not a surgeon? I'll save those questions I have I guess! Close call! :)

What, you don't still want that six-pack implant? Oh come on - I need the practice!
