Canon SD 950 IS
This rock is maybe 5″ tall. So what makes this look so large? The Canon SD950 IS camera sat on a mini 5″ tripod. Yes, it is one of those little bendy tripods that I bought on Amazon for $.70 (plus shipping).
It’s a little tricky to use on the desert floors because there is no way that I’m going to lay prone on the ground here so I can look at the monitor… I’d be removing prickies from myself for days! As it is, I rarely come home from a photo shoot without something stuck in me. Since this camera doesn’t have a pull-out viewer, I had to do a bit of guessing to get the rock in the photo the way I wanted it. (Set it down, take the photo, pick it up, look at the photo, try again… repeat and repeat…)
This is an example of the volcanic rock that covers a lot of the desert floor here… those are gaseous holes on the surface of the rock.
