Macro Photography can be anything you want. I really really love to take photos of flowers, and I have to remind myself that there are other things that deserve a closeup. I’ve always loved the way macro photography makes you slow down to get the details. Because that’s really what it’s about..the details. Like the water drop hanging on the branch, getting ready to fall off.
Or the skin of the fresh raspberry….
Settings: f/4.5 Shutter Speed: 1/100 ISO 6400
or even the leaves of a dying tulip….
Settings: Aperture: f/2.8 shutter speed: 1/160 ISO 6400
Tips for Macro Photography: Remember, macro photography can be whatever you want it to be. Just remember: keep a steady hand or tripod, manually focus your lens shoot in burst mode. Have fun!!!
