Another retro photoshoot using the old Canon S5is
January 06, 2015 • Leave a Comment
It seems like I just keep saying this about this awesome little camera. I will never get rid of it. I was kind of struggling with how to take today's Project 365 picture. My keyword was reflections, and I decided to use this tiny (about half an inch across) swarovski crystal fish. I tried a number of different things such as trying to fake the water by putting him on blue paper, but in the end I put him in a bowl of water and rippled the water with my finger while I exposed the shot. The problem was that I was trying to shoot it with my 7D and the 18-55 lens, simply because that's what I've been using. And then I remember that I have challenged myself to learn, try new things, innovate, etc. That's when I remembered the little S5is sitting in a drawer. Its amazing supermacro feature will continue to save me until I have saved enough bucks to buy a proper macro lens. But even then, I pledge never to get rid of my trusty little camera. So the lesson learned for today is to stop just using whatever tool is at hand and to purposely look for the appropriate tool for each job.
