Basic Tips And Tricks

(Basically when we buy any D-SLR either its canon or Nikon we get 18-55mm lens and it’s not macro lens so we are taking example of this lens to understand Macro photography and click macro photos)

Identify Where Is Your Object

So to capture macro photographs we need to identify where is our object and what is our object.

Reason – because right now we are not using any macro lens to click macro photographs so we need to first identify our object’s place,because if our object is living thing then we need to apply different way and if its non living thing then there is another different method.lets understand this.

  • When our object is Living thing.

Like some butterfly’s ,insects etc which moves rapidly at that time we must need some distance other wise we are not able to capture images.

so at that time just make closer distance as possible and zoom in your lens to get better macro photos,that’s one trick to capture When your object is Living thing.

Or another trick apply only for professional photographers who really wants some awesome macro photographs.

so for this photographer need to stand along with thair tri-pod at one place and when any other object like bird ,butterfly etc came just simply without noise capture the best macro photographs.
