I don’t consider myself a photographer by any means. I am more of a point and click guy. Problem is once you try to get some tricky shots you can’t rely on just point and shoot.
Fortunately our Canon S95 has manual settings where you can set various options found in higher end cameras.
For this particular shot you really need a tripod, but I managed to do it balancing it on a book :).
The settings I used were , f 4.9, 1/125, ISO 80, 15x digital zoom which I found on Google somewhere.
