A Model Student
Lens: 35 and 100 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Rainy SE Texas 
Posted By: Sailor, 02-11-2010, 06:10 PM

A rainy afternoon kept me inside and after reading for several hours, I decided to pull out my DFA 100 and DA 35 and try some macro shots of a car model my older daughter gave me for Christmas. I don't shoot macro often, and like a "model student", I learn something everytime I take a crack at it. Today I learned (re-learned, if I'm honest) that the camera "sees" dust that my bleary old eyes don't (see image 1). Still, I had fun, and it sure beat watching nincompoops screaming at one another on cable news.

I'll remember my Swifter next time.

Jer

Ha, ha...I like your attitude Jer of TV versus doing ANYTHING else any a rainy day. Interesting project you came up with for a learning experience. I keep settling for the cat for lack of imagination.

Hey thanks, Tom - I just gotta remember to dust stuff off before going to the work of macro photography. Regarding the "screaming heads" . . . . we've got 'em droves; the good news is you can turn 'em off.

Thanks, my friend. Yeah, anything's better than TV. I should do macro more often - it takes you into a "different world". This was the first time I've used my DA 35 as a true macro since I bought it about a year ago.

Thanks. It's an incredibly detailed model - even the carpeted areas in the cockpit and both "trunks" are covered with a soft, fuzzy fabric.
