10 Quick Tips for Professional Macro PhotographingPosted: October 20, 2011
TO MY READERS: PLEASE NOTE…I WILL SLOWLY CHANGE OVER TO MY NEW SITE.
Today I’ll give you 10 quick tips on photographing Macro style:
2. Buy a Macro Lens & DSLR Camera (two for one on this tip)
3. Use a Tripod.
4. Use Mirror Lock up on your DSLR Camera.
6. The closer you get to the subject the less depth-of-field you will have; play with that for artistic pictures.
7. Play with lighting: want texture -light from the side, want saturation – light in front (built-in pop-up lights don’t work).
8. Focus on your main subject and make that sharp! Watch out for the background - you don’t want it to take away from your subject.
9. Manual Focus
and most of all….
10. Have fun!!
