I remembered seeing that Macro Zoom feature on my camera so I couldn't wait to try the technique out for myself on this amazing bouquet of yellow roses we purchased at Costco last week. (Yes- purchased last week and still opening bright, brilliant, sunny yellow. My favorite color next to red.) I think this feature probably works best in the daytime, but I wanted to give it a try just using the existing light in the room. Cameras are really incredible these days, aren't they?

What a beautiful Easter weekend we had here in New England. Much deserved after the horrible rains and flooding we've had in March. Last Friday, I had a wonderful conversation with my good friend Joan. She posted a photo of a charm on her blog that looked so professional and so I asked her about what kind of camera she had. She told me she took it using the Macro Zoom feature on her digital camera. She gets in really close, like 1/4" away from the subject, and then points her finger where she wants the camera to focus in the photo before she shoots-you know, how you hold the button down halfway to focus before shooting?
