The Daily Snap – April 24
More and more I am using the built-in flash on the G11 to make alternative looking nature photos. I found these seed pods in the forest in Burlington, Ontario. I placed the camera under the seed heads and pointed the lens up towards the sky. I used the tilt swivel LCD on the G11 to help compose this image. I used aperture priority at f4 and exposed the sky so it was dark and brooding. I then added fill flash at -1 exposure compensation to light up the seed heads. I love the macro mode on the G11 and the little flash on the camera is great for lighting up subjects that would otherwise be silhouttes.
