Macro Photography - Larger than Life
I heard the word "MACRO" in my college final year. A friend of mine, who was passionate about photography introduced me to this, that was probably the time when this option was introduced in digital cameras at a large scale. The digi-cam that I owned then was a little primitive and did not have this option.
After a year, I bought my first camera - CANON, which had this Macro option. As I began to explore the many many features of my camera, this one stuck my eye! Alas, I started shooting every flower that came my way wherever I went. Taught this mode to my mom and she, who loves flowers, went around parks to shoot each and every lovely colorful flower around.
The best thing about this feature is, you do not require much of photographic skills! Just place your camera near the object, turn to macro mode, click, and there you get a beautiful image!
This feature basically zooms and shows you the finer details of the object - ideal for using on flowers, insects or any small and intricate object!
Listed below are a few points to be taken care while shooting in this wonderful mode:
1. Low light is a major setback for macro photographs. Ensure you have adequate light in place.
2. Distance between the lens and the object should be optimum to avoid low clarity images and correct focus.
3. The feature does not work very well with objects in motion. Still objects give best image clarity.
4. Do not use Zoom while using the Macro Feature
Macro was one of the features that increased my passion for photography. Teach your kids this magic feature that shows the beauty of the small things around you.
Photos added in this hub are taken by me or my brother. These should give an idea on what could be the different types of objects that can be subjected to Macro.
Do shoot and let me know your experience with Macro - Larger than Life images!
