The control wheel has gotten flaky on my “old” trusty Canon G11. I’m pretty sure this video shows the simplest, and definitely the cheapest, fix. But anyway… Yesterday, while I was trying to find a solution for the wheel problem, I had the camera out so I took it outside and grabbed a few shots of our red amaryllis. I metered for a “high key” look for these first two shots.
And because the G11 does great macro, I had to get in close.

Using shallow depth of field and 1 1/2 stop overexposure on the backdrop, I was able to almost totally eliminate the detail of the garage wall behind the amaryllis. The result was a “painterly” effect.

After band rehearsal today Maggie and I took the back roads home. I spied a nice crop of naked ladies along a fence at the crest of a hill, so I pulled off the road and grabbed a few shots. During late summer the naked ladies are a common sight along roadsides and country driveways all over Sonoma County.

What else can I say, other than this image was taken today?
