Today's Art: Playing With Photography

I received my new camera today, a new Canon Powershot SD780 IS. First thing I did, was try out the macro:



This is a macro shot of the back of my hand/knuckles. I need lotion!

Then of course I had to try some shots of my pieces:



This macro picture blew my mind when I saw it on the computer screen full size. It's around .50" x .75" of the piece, so you can tell how detailed the macro is on this baby!

Then I needed some portrait shots, and Mitzie begrudgingly let me use her as a model - wonder where her sister Molly hid to avoid pictures...





I love this camera! Woohoo!

I've had a Canon Power Shot for several years. (Maybe the 620???) I love it. The auto settings work so well that I haven't yet mastered the manual settings. The only drawback is that the flash doesn't make even light over. I can improve that by adjusting the flash to more light, but it isn't as good as I'd like.

Congratulations on the camera! The photos look great.
