I screwed a +4 close up filter on my zoom lens and went out this afternoon (too dark, though - should have gone when the sun was out) and shot a few images even with the wind blowing everything around and making the focus hard to achieve. The act of moving the camera toward the subject to get focus created movement I'm not sure I liked, but the images always seem so unique when done with this technique. Compositions are so simplified that they tend to be difficult to mess up.
Here they are, also one from the studio with the more sensible +1 filter!
What is this third image? A blue compact fluorescent in my studio!
