Explore the finer details of your photos through Close Examination.
Use Macro Mode, Zoom in, (a little), or crop afterwards to take macro and close-up photographs.
This photo was a little too close for comfort.
Photographic Tips – Improving your Macro Photography
- Check the composition of your photo
- Take multiple shots
- Use Manual mode or focus if you can
- Stabilize your camera as much as possible – (a tripod or solid base helps)
- Move the subject, not the camera
- Try adding the effect of different backgrounds
- Check your depth of field for focusing
I got a bit fancy with the Canva templates, but the close-up, above, of the little mushrooms, were very worthwhile to highlight. So delicate sitting atop their thin stalks, they appeared to defy gravity.
And now for a slideshow of flowers:-
I added a frame around the pumpkin leaves. It may have been edited with Snapseed, but it is from my archives, so I can’t be sure. I do like the way you can see the furry hairs on the pumpkin leaves. Glaucous is the botanic name for hairy leaves, I think.
