Close-up with Canon S95

I have started exploring the newly bought Canon S95. I’m kinda new to this photography thing. My first impression of S95 is that it offers good features and the photos taken were clear. There are lots of features that I need to explore more, but now I want to share the close-up/macro feature.

The photo above is taken indoor, about 5 inches from the object, without zoom. To take this picture, I set the camera to P (stands for Program AE). Then choose Macro (with the picture of a flower). Press the shutter button halfway. The camera will try to focus on the object. After the camera finished focusing, press the shutter button fully.

In the specifications, the camera can close-up an object not less than 2 inches in distance. I did try to focus on an object less than 2 inches and the camera could not focus on that object.

Below is another photo taken outdoor, about 10 inches from the object. I zoomed for a closer look at the object. 



Disneyland, here we come

I have always wanted to visit interesting places overseas. This is a great opportunity. What makes it more exciting is this will be a fully sponsored trip. Thanks to the company for this reward, after a few months joining the business.

The company rewards the business partners after making certain number of sales, and it is not difficult to achieve. We only spent approximately 3 months to earn the trip, plus bonuses and the satisfaction of helping others to achieve their dreams.

If you want to know how to enjoy free trips like this, feel free to contact me, Zaer, 012-2281541.

I passed PMP exam at the first attempt. :)

I have passed my PMP exam and just want to share what I did to prepare for the exam.

  • Attended 3 sessions of PMP exam preparation classes (from Aug until Nov 2010) conducted by Mr SK Khor and Mr Nan Phin (www.asiaictpm.org).
  • Finished reading the text book.
  • Completed the on-line test prep
  • Completed the exam simulation in the text book’s CD

While completing the steps above there a few things that I did as well.

  • Took a 5 days leave to complete reading the book. (Thank you boss for approving my leave). If I did not take leave I might not be able to finish the book. Tips: The best time to read is in the morning. This is the time you can comprehend and memorize the most.
  • While doing the tests, I marked the questions that I was not sure. I went back to the text book and reread that sections.
  • For questions that I answered wrong, I read the explanation for the correct answer.
  • Memorize all the formulas. On the exam day, before starting the exam, I wrote down the formulas on the blank sheets given.

To anyone taking the exam this month, I wish them good luck.
