POINT & CLICK WITH ANNA Z : MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

.

Hello! Today I wanted to share some tips and tricks for Macro photography. Macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. This is a unique way to show the beauty and detail of tiny objects. I think insects and flowers are the most fun to photograph.

It would help you to have a Macro lens or a screw on wide angle lens (which I have). The screw on lens isn't the most professional option, but does produce results, which you can see in some of my photos. Here's a version of the lens I have on amazon, here.

Here are some tips when you're shooting Macro:
1. Switch to manual focus, always. When working close to a subject autofocus tends to end up searching backwards and forwards for something to focus on. If your camera is struggling your subject may be gone when you're finally ready.
2. Avoid Shake. A steady hand or a tripod is a good idea.
3. Pre focus Camera. Again, Your subject may be gone in a second. You must be quick, especially when shooting animals.
4. Light your shot well. Use natural light when possible.
5. Fill as much of the frame as possible with your subject.

Please be sure to stop over at my blog and say hello. Thanks for having me Sandi!
