Up Close and Personal


Ricoh GRD4 (probably f1.9)

This wee beastie inspired an up close and personal iPhone vs Camera challenge. The shallow depth of field and the macro ability of the Ricoh GRD4 pull this portrait into sharp focus.

Using the factory iPhone lens and the Snapseed editing app Mrs. DW tried to mimic the macro effect on these thrift shop spools, but nothing comes close to the adjustable aperture of the camera.

Extra credit: Does anyone know the name of our little visitor?
