Up close (with haiku).

Bobble-headed cat,
What do you do in the night
When I can't watch you?

Aren't those photos interesting? This weekend, we bought a close-up filter that will let us take more shots like those. I find the perspective allowed by this filter fascinating. In the two shots above, for example, it's as if the cat has his own secret life that happens when humans aren't around.

I'm really looking forward to using the filter with food photography. Some of the best shots are those extreme close-ups of the frosting on a cupcake, or crispy skin on chicken. We'll see what we can do with it later this week.
