By changing your photographic perspective you can take some really cool and artistic pictures. The above photo was taken in front of a tiny puddle.
Select your macro setting (this will allow the focus to be on whatever is on the ground in front of the camera).
Set your self timer.
Place it on the ground, start the timer and . . .
RUN . . . jump in front of the camera about 8 feet away.
You could take a family photo like this, or pictures of your kids (they will think it's so much fun running back and forth). Of course the street is not an ideal location for kids, but a garden pathway would be great.
A special thanks to my handy assistant Erika for making sure I did not get hit by any passing cars!
