slightly flawed, still focused



Camera Critters

I decided to give Camera Critters a try, I sure hope I'm doing my first post right, if not just let me know and I'll try to do better next time. :)

While I was playing with the settings on my camera, increasing the depth of field. . .

. . .and decreasing the dof, I noticed the flower had something a little extra on it.

It appears to be a tee-tiny, nearly microscopic, clear, see-through, slug? He sure boogied, slithered and slimed, himself all over the flower while I was snapping away.

That little dark spot on him, is actually in him, maybe his organs (or poo?)?

Needless to say, every single shot I took that day was marred, in some way, by his presence. That’s mostly because I had taken about 30 shots before I even noticed he existed!

  4. Wow! It's amazing how the camera can zoom into those microscopic things our eyes would never know where there. I love the second picture, how you made the flower pop out and the background is just slightly blurred.

  5. Funny how the eyes see...or don't see...and we end up with a little surprise on our computer screen.

    That's amazing. Sure makes me want to go out and purchase a nicer camera.

  10. Don't you just LOVE when you get a shot within a shot like that? BEAUTIFUL Lisa!

  11. I like these, Lisa. What a discovery. It is an interesting relationship that exists between the eye and the camera. They definitely complement each other. Thanks for bringing me close!

  13. I knew you'd be a 'natural' at this Lisa!!! What a wonderful series of shots for your first CC post! If you really want to get rid of the 'critter' ... you can do it with PSE quite easily ... but somehow its presence seems part of the whole experience ... especially now that you've shared here ... just because.
    Hugs and blessings,

  15. EEEWWWWWW! I've never seen a clear slug. I'm cringing and shuddering. I can hardly even mention how pretty the flower was!
