iris macro by Emberblue iris macro by Emberblue
I recently discovered that my camera not only has a macro function, but also has a SUPER macro function. Fun fun! :D So I did my best to take a detailed photo of my iris. I wish the picture was a little bit sharper, but I'm still kinda happy with it. It is a little hard to see, but the camera lense is right inside my pupil. I might do something more with this at a later time or try to re-shoot it to get it looking the way I originaly planned. I wish I had a nice camera with a macro lense, that would be TONS of fun!

wow, yeah, that's not bad for the camera, and a (i'm assuming) hand-held shot :) :clap:

I had the camera sitting on a table. And I think I laid my head on the table too, lol! It would be imposible to get any clarity from a hand-held shot that close.

Thanks! :D

I always have better luck with my camera's macro function over its "super" macro function. It's very picky with the super mode and I can never get it just right.

My wife had a nice canon 32mm at some point, but we sold it during the "go digital" craze and bought a cheaper digital camera. I am thinking it is almost time to save up and get a more serious camera.

You kept your eye nice and still. :) Nice the way you got the lens reflection in the center!

The super macro function on my camera works well...if the object is totally still of course, lol! I can't remember, but I might have used the remote control so that I would not have any movement of the camera, or my eye. Digital cameras are awesome, but there is still something lovely about a good quality film camera.
