Macro Monday: Seashells by the Sea Shore

Sardinian seashells by the Sardinian sea-shore

I’m still trying to get my head around this macro photography!

Any tips on how I can improve? I’m all ears.

  1. If you’re into macro stuff, I recommend Mr Diffleys blog:

  2. BobR says:

    Good, clear macro shots will depend largely on the type of camera and lenses. Blog mentioned above is good, and there are lots of others.

  3. I dont have fancy, expensive camera equipment. I use a Sony Cyber-Shot which I love and has a macro setting on it. I think when I get too close to the object the end result is blurry. Trail and error!

  4. Yes, Trial and error is the best method. I too have a relatively cheap camera, a canon sx30. But.. I shoot A LOT of photos. Maybe only 1 out of 50 is what i “like”.. the rest are just a learning experience. I tend to shoot a particular object ( I shoot a lot at the beach too) from many different angles.

  5. Ottima principiante!! In fondo è la passione che conta!
    Ti seguo da quando ho letto di te sul giornale e ti ammiro molto. Ho notato, se non sbaglio, che non conosci il Supramonte. Guarda le mie foto
    posso darti delle utili indicazioni visto che ci vado da circa 20 anni.

  6. Yeah JA, no experience with your camera type. I have a dedicated Macro for my Nikon and I have had some success but never read much except T&A. Juliet has this phenomenal little macro lens for her iPhone that takes killer macros called OloClip…

  7. And, I appreciate your comments and help, really I do. Maybe we had a miss-communication, I’m sorry if my previous comment may have seemed sarcastic and I can see now how it reads like that, with my poor punctuation. I’ve seen what the iPhones can do and I’m pretty impressed, yet blown away with technology. In a FB group for expats in Italy, I made a comment saying that I should have been born in the 20’s, with flapper dresses and raw basics. 🙂

  8. Just stunning!! Can’0t wait to go to the beach myself 🙂

  9. I think they are perfect! Great shots! Sun, Sand and Shells… what else do we need?

Your comments are greatly appreciated, thank you.
