Sunday Stills, the next Challenge: Macro

Keep in mind this isn’t all about bugs and flowers, its all about getting as close to the subject as possible whatever it is. You don’t need an expensive camera with a macro lens to get great shots, most point and shoot cameras have a macro setting which allows you to get closer than the standoff distance of about a foot away, my Canon G12 PAS takes great macros and I will use it this week along with my DSLR. SO anything goes this week as long as you get real close and think outside the box, there are lots of cool things to photograph and also use some creative cropping to get real close….:-)

I’ll start this off with some macro shots I took last week…..

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Medical Things

I thought of this challenge last night while driving through Illinois at 3 a.m.
For this week lets see all things medical or medical related, from pills to band aids and from ambulances to things in hospitals. If it heals, treats or transports its fair game this week. I’ll be interested to see medical transport from some of our contributors over seas. Have fun.. :-)

For the demo pics, I’m using my dad as a demonstration. He was a medic in the U.S. army in Germany in 1957 (he is the rear stretcher bearer and the Dodge Ambulance was his ride…
