Playing with Macro Photography

This past Christmas I was given a new super-duper camera. By super-duper I mean amaze-balls, well it’s amazing to me! It’s a Sony Cyber-shot, 16.2 mega pixels and I am in love.

There are so many fantastic features on this camera, that I am in awe. My favourite feature is the Intelligent Auto setting. The camera automatically sets to landscape, portrait, macro and many more. All I have to do is arrange the photo to my liking and point and shoot. Easy. Love.

I’m slowly learning the ropes of photography and have recently begun to play with the macro setting.

How did I do? How can I improve my macro photo shooting?

    Wow really great macro pictures! I love the Food mode on cameras sometimes, you can try that mode too! I’m in the midst of figuring out how to fiddle with my camera too…:D Keep up the good work! ;)

    Picture #2 is the best, for me. Very good focus!
    Macro is a different skill than scenic photography. And you’re doing great!

    An inexpensive tripod will be a great help. At high magnifications, a steady image becomes more important. Do you have one, Jenny?

    I enjoy macro. A very different view than we ever get to see. Focuses your attention on tiny details.

    More pics, please.
    Thanks for posting.

    • Hi David. Thanks for the tips. I dont have a tripod, but after playing with macro, I see why I do need one! I totally shake, even the beating of my heart makes the camera move! Ill have to look into that. Glad you liked my pics. :)

  11. WOW – I just got a macro a few months ago and haven’t been able to post anything. I will get the technique with pratice. I was going to tell you about a tripod but David has mentioned that in his comment.
    Keep up the good work.

  12. Judee says:

    Excellent, wiosh I had a camera that could do that.

  13. Just keep on doing what you’re doing, is my advice.

    That’s because I know nothing at all about macro myself. I’ll test it out on some Dutch tulips next week.

Your comments are greatly appreciated, thank you.
