Pretty as a Rose...

    f 6.3 1/200sec ISO 100

Last flower pic for awhile, I promise...
Taken using a Canon 100mm macro with a 430 EXII flashed into a foam core board from the upper left of the subject.

    f8 1/200sec ISO100

A macro shot of a flower that Em received for her birthday. Because I only get a chance to shoot at night, this shot was lit by flashing a 430EX against a foam core board at close range. I used a Canon 100mm macro and some Kenko extension tubes.

    f22 1/8 sec ISO200 

The above is a shot of a slice of orange shot on a piece of glass. I shot a flash from the bottom and the resulting shot is the light being reflected through the slice.

Still enjoying the macro...

Small Things...

    f2.8 0.3sec ISO200

Time to go macro!! I have always found macro photography interesting and with my birthday approaching I was thinking of getting a macro lens.

My dad (Denis Toh) has lent me his lens (Canon 100mm f2.8) for me to give macro photography a try.
The above image is the first shot I took.

It is of a Canon G9, lit by a candle :) The color version gives it a nice warm feel; however I liked the b&w version as it makes the focal point of the image pop a little more.
