  1. Thanks. Most of my leaf shots over the past few weeks were shot in the same hardwood forest behind one the residence halls on campus. It’s where I take my daily constitutional before heading to my office. Because I’m lazy, I don’t often haul the Canon and its entourage of accessories into the woods. Most my leaf shots in this location were shot with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, a poor man’s Leica point-and-shoot (it has a Leica lens). I bought it because it’s one of the few P&S’ers that will shoot Camera Raw. And it’s got a relatively decent macro setting. I love the damn thing. It takes far better images than I had a right to expect.

    I use a monopod. Oddly, the end of the monopod doesn’t often hit the ground. It acts as a handle. It’s easier to brace the camera holding the monopod. Sometimes I just park the end of the monopod against my leg. Sharpness of images (to me) directly related to killing as much camera motion as possible. The smaller a camera gets, the more likely simply pushing the shutter induces camera shake.

    But I ramble … as usual. Thanks for the comments.
