Alright, I've taken photography classes and the like, but I don't really have the equipment for it. I was bored, and was playing with my toy Bronco and saw my camera and figured I'd try some macro. I have a Kodak Z 1012 IS that has a 33-396mm (equivalent) lens. It's not built for macro photography, or semi-amateur photography with a 12x optical zoom, and only saving files as jpeg. This is in my dorm room at 1am, using printer paper for a lightbox effect, and an overhead lamp to get the shadows. Posted these on my photobucket with a 1024x768 limit, but I have the original files I can put up there since they are jpeg and under 1mb. The best one of the bunch I think. I wish I had a proper light box at this point, or I could at least make one out of cheap cardboard and paper Another decent one, I wish I had a better DOF, but I wanted a quick exposure since I didn't have a tripod. I like this one, but it could be lighter. Trying an "environment" here. With all the light on, I have a bit of a yellow tint in my room, and my walls are off white to begin with. Still could do for a white balance though. Couldnt get the autofocus to work, and I need to remember how to work the manual zoom. I also need a tripod. Some creative criticism would be nice. I know I'm no pro, but I would like some help taking better shots. No new camera for a while, I need a job first.
