I recently bought a Canon Powershot S100. For me, it was the best pocket camera available. Best, meaning it provides easy control over an extensive range of variables, plus it shoots in raw.
This morning, not thinking photography, I summoned my dog for a walk in the Northport’s village park. While strolling to my car, I saw a single maple leaf on the hood of my car. Reflected on the hood were various autumn colors. I reached for my Canon S100 and began composing and shooting. Here are the best from the batch:
What I like about the shots is that the hood becomes a “filter,” and diffuses the background somewhat so it becomes a nice contextual backdrop to the single leaf.
I have to say, it is likely I got these shots because I now carry my S100 with me all the time. I do not want to miss opportunity shots. That’s why I got the camera. It’s one thing to have your phone camera handy, but in my case, I’d like to have the option of enlarging any of my shots to include in my shows.
