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?
You did VERY well!
Thank you! 🙂
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.
Thanks Richard. I really have no idea about macro either. But it’s fun to play around with.
Excellent, wiosh I had a camera that could do that.
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.
Thank you, I certainly need a tripod!
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. 🙂
Love the last one 🙂
I like the flowers in the last picture.
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! 😉
I’ve used the food mode several times, but I don’t like how the pic turns out. Any tips?
The photos are great! It is fun playing with a new camera.
Just so beautiful..
How beautiful. I like them. 🙂
Dear Jennifer, you did a great shots, I loved them all. Especially the first one fascinated me. In the second one, I haven’t seen this plant before, it is amazing… And with the next one you got a nice pattern, and last one wonderful dear Jennifer. Thank you, have a nice day, with my love, nia
Thank you Nia. Photography is a great pastime. 🙂
Wow!! Great Going!! I do not know much about Macro photography but then I really loved the first two pics. They were just awesome! Keep it up!
Wow, thank you for your wonderful encouragement!
