Macro Monday | Sardinian Fig

Macro Monday – The Sprouting of Fig Season

Taken with a Sony Cyber-Shot, automatic setting when I get close to things.

What do you think?

Do you have any tips on macro photography?

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    That is a great shot and could be an entry for the ‘unfocused’ photo challenge of the week… the unfocused background makes the subject stand out even more.
    I too use a sony cyber shot and I am happy with the images it produces (this is our 3rd one!). The only thing I wish it had was more zoom to get those shots far away, but the macro is fantastic.

  2. Hey, I really liked the photo. It may have had an interesting look if the leaves were out of focus as well and the only object in the depth of view was the round green peice. I was wondering if you could share what the settings of your apature and f-stop were?

    • Ciao Andrew.

      I have no idea about apature and f-stop!! I have a point and shoot which adjusts to the settings around me. I’m still learning, slowly the settings on my camera. I’ll keep your tip in mind when shooting new macro shots. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  3. I’ve never seen fig leaves on a happy tree before, or at least not so young. The texture you captured is so evocative that I now understand why Matisse used gouache to paint them… 🙂 Thank you!

  4. Hee hee I have a photo like that I took yesterday but minus the blue sky. I go as close as I can and then my little Lumix does the macro thing too on the Aperture Priority setting seems to get the fuzzy out background thing. I don’t know if it’s the same with your camera. I am not a camera person really! I want your blue sky, my fig waves to yours from the UK, saying bring out the sunshine 🙂

  5. I know nothing about photography, but I love this shot. My partner planted a fig tree in our back garden last summer, and it is at about the same stage of budding/blooming so far this spring. Bet you get some great figs there where you live!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. It was fun having you!

    Hugs,
    Kathy
