I Need Photography Skills

I went through some boxes this weekend to see what I can discard before I go to Europe. The less stuff I have to store, the better, and I'm sure my sister is thrilled to receive my castoff weatherstripping, witch make-up, and telephone cords. In addition to those treats, I discovered the manual to my digital camera. I sat down and read it on Saturday and it was life. changing. I have long envied people with close-up functions on their cameras, but apparently, I have that option on my camera! It's been there all these years. I tried it out tonight with the marmots. It makes it so much easier to photograph

sweet potato biscuits



and green bean salad



and square-faced babies.


This one wasn't taken with the macro function. I just like these little boys.

I love my macro function. It makes me feel like I have skills--which I don't. Those sweet potato biscuits look yummy. My office mate thinks so too since he looked over and saw the picture. ;)

Those sweet potato biscuits probably would have looked even yummier if Tuey hadn't "helped" my sister make them. They were still delicious, though.

macro is awesome. most of my shots these days are in macro mode.

Amy said...

Hey, maybe my camera has one of those!

MBC said...

Rebekah--Yeah, I dig your macro photos. And I want to see pictures of Molly on your blog.

Amy--Look for a picture of a tulip on your wheel.

I heart my macro function. It's a food bloggers best friend.
