A few months ago, before I got my Nikon I stumbled across a number of Lady Birds hunkering down for the winter outside the office on a fence and got a macro shot of them using my Fuji Finepix point and shoot. Today is the first time I’ve been back to this office this year and I made a point of checking them out and sure enough, they’re still there and they’ve increased in number to the point where the rule of thirds no longer apply, you’ll see what I mean when you look at the picture from a few months ago.
This is the one I took back in November, Added Kudos to the yellow fella who’s moved on now…
It’s difficult to try and take macro shots with an 18-55mm lens and I have tried to follow the advice of zooming and moving to get close ups and focus right but I don’t think the picture is as sharp as it could be. I will, given time, invest in a macro lens and really get down on my knees!
Below I’ve included a couple of pictures I took over 2 years ago on the Fuji, unfortunately, because of the blasted Kindle I’ve had to snag screenshots off of Instagram so they’re not the original files. I don’t know if this will effect the view but I have no idea where the originals are!
