Essence of Autumn by LiveInAMoment Essence of Autumn by LiveInAMoment
Pinecones are probably my favorite part of nature's design during the fall season and this photograph just turned out lovely. I can't wait to try photographing pinecones when I have a DSLR camera one day. Adjusting the focus could really make this photo stand out.

Camera: iPhone 3GS

I love pine cones! This one is very pretty, love the autumn feel.

I don't have a macro lens so I have to take a photo from a distance or my close focus objects are always blurry.

Once the picture is taken I put it in a paint program (I use abandonware PSP, I don't know what Pixlr is like) I zoom in afterwards (crop out the unwanted edges), blur around the object of focus and sharpen the object a little.

It isn't as good as having a macro lens, but it certainly helps!

(Another thing I do when trying to trick my auto focus is to briefely put my hand out directly in front of a small object. The camera will focus on my hand's distance, then put everything at that distance in focus. I snap the shutter quick and volia, no losing focus on tiny objects!)

Thank you :)

I guess once I get a camera I'll have to get an editing software as well. My MacBook doesn't have image editing software so I just use online ones like Pixlr. A macro lens would be cool but it's nice to know that editing the blur, focus, and sharpness of an image can get a similar effect.

Thanks for the auto focus tip! I'll keep that in mind next time I take some photographs. I don't know it it will work with my phone's camera but I'll give it a try.
