Coming Soon! Collective Shoot #41!

  1. Having celebrated summer, let's try something a little different for this CS....approach your subject(s) up close! While you CAN shoot with a macro lens, extension tubes, diopters, whatever, that is not necessary for this adventure. Many regular lenses will focus fairly closely and you'll be surprised with the results you can get with a non-macro lens. Actually, for all you macro shooters it could be a fun exercise putting away that macro gear and experimenting with your other lenses! The idea: shoot something close up.... Doesn't have to be a 1:1 ratio, doesn't have to be "macro," just reasonably close up....

    An example I shot last week with the 18-55mm kit lens:

    Another example, shot last year with "the Beast" (28-70mm):


    I don't happen to have any good examples, but of course people, pets, and whatever else you encounter at close distance will work nicely for this, too! Here's where you can show off your dog's sweet face or your cat's whiskers!

    Time frame: beginning at 1:00 AM your local time on Friday, June 29th and running through 11:59 PM on Monday, July 2nd.... You have until Thursday, July 5th to submit images, as in the US July 4th is a national holiday.

    No more than three images, please.... and also keep in mind the size of your image files out of consideration for those who are still using dialup to access the Cafe.

    OK, start thinking about getting up close and personal..... :smile: SUBMIT your photos in the Miscellany forum -- here
