One area of photography that I happen to enjoy very much is macro photography. Macro photography is all about taking pictures of items up close. I took this shot of one of the flowers that I brought home for Shabbos last week.
While I have a lens that specializes in macro photography, most digital cameras have a macro setting that will allow you to take macro pictures with the lenses that are on them. You may not be able to take 1:1 (life size) pictures with them as I can with this lens, but you can still get some nice macro shots (remember my sunflower? -- that was with a point and shoot.) with a standard P&S with a macro mode.
Just for reference, here is the whole flower...
As always, comments, critiques and criticisms are welcome and appreciated.
