Interested in trying out macro photography? This quick and helpful video will give you three tips to keep in mind when you start shooting the small stuff.
Coming to you from ZY Productions, this excellent video will offer you three useful macro photography tips in just two minutes. Macro photography is a fun genre for almost anyone to experiment in, particularly since there's a veritable plethora of readily available subjects just about anywhere you go — even just around the house or your yard. However, it comes with its own set of unique challenges, two of the biggest being lighting and depth of field. If you find you're having trouble getting enough light for your exposures, a dedicated macro flash can do quite a bit of good. In addition, the insanely shallow depth of field you're likely to be working with can make achieving and maintaining focus very difficult using just the lens' focusing ring. This is where a dedicated set of focusing rails can really come in handy and will also allow you to more easily focus-stack an image if you choose to really dive into the world of macro photography.
