Did a little “macro” photography this evening for fun and i used my wife’s cross stitch as my subject.
The thread and the needle were perfect subjects.
I used my X10 for this. The lens was set at 28mm (in the super “macro” setting, it will not work beyond 28mm) and i set it at f/2.0.
With the lens at an angle to the cross stich, i was able to get the center in focus and the surrounding area out of focus.
