The Daily Snap – April 24

©Darwin Wiggett - Canon G11

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.

    Love this photo Darwin !..I have the canon sx10IS which I like because of the tilt swivel LCD and the 20X zoom. The more pictures I see you take with your G11 the more I want one!..Isa it worth the change in cameras?
