So we got out for a quick walk today and along the way came across this little fella

As you can see I was in a playful mood so used the inbuilt tweak to shoot yellow.

And above in macro mode I think, but I really struggled to get in close with my kit lens :(

Advice needed!

Looks really god. Only suggestion is to black and white everything around the bug and leave the bug in color.

I'm not sure how small the yellow monster is, so it's hard for me to tell if you've reached the macro limit of your lens or not.

To get the most out of your SEL18-55, make sure you zoom out to the telephoto side (55mm) and you should be able to get the vertical length of your thumb from the top to the bottom of your screen. That's about the limit where it can focus (about 10" from the subject to the back of your NEX). If you need a bigger magnification, you'll need another lens.

(... of course you can always crop the photo as long as you don't plan to print it too big)

Yes I believe I was in the region of 10" :) I'd love to take a shot worthy of printing (and framing, I love posters!!), one day I hope... With the NEXC3 maybe...
