These are some images taken with the Canon S2 in either Macro or Super Macro mode. They're not meant to necessarily be beautiful, but rather to practice a technical point.
|This is the most close-up shot I've taken so far. The lens was nearly right up against the bill, with just enough room to let some light in with a flashlight. This is not cropped -- this is the actual size of the image.|
|Close-up of a model car, actual size about 3" long.|
|This little jade kirin is about 2" long. We bought it in Shanghai.|
|These images are taken of the same object with the same lighting, but with different apertures. The top is F/2.7; the bottom is F/8. The shutter time was adjusted to provide roughly equal overall exposure. You can see a big difference in the depth of field -- the bottom picture is much sharper from front to back.|
|Same idea as above, but with a different subject.|
|C size battery.|
