Photography Tips for Macro Shots

According to a bright spot, who posts amazing photos, including an amazing in camera double exposure of a pink daisy:

Bright sun is often not the ideal conditions for getting colour and detail of flowers UNLESS you underexpose, to get a black background and make the colours ‘pop’.

  1. Beautiful photos! This looks like a fun challenge and a great reason for me to pull out my camera that’s been tucked away for the past few years. I’m making it a goal to post a Friendly Friday post this week.

    1. I like to hear of new bloggers interested in joining the challenge, so welcome to Friendly Friday! Be sure to leave a comment here with the url to visit, as pingbacks to host blogs don’t always work and we, as hosts, do like to know, so we can visit. Have fun compiling your post.

    1. Thank you for joining in the challenge and I would go check out your entry but the URL you posted doesn’t lead to your blog. Can you post the URL of your blog post itself?


  2. I am so envious when I see beautiful macros, like on your post right here. I have been practicing …. with my iPhone. And I realise what my challenge is: I can’t always see very well (transitioning eyesight – bleuch!) and when I do, my closeups always turn up more successful than not. I know, I know, very obvious, but it took me a while. 🤣
