65+ Stunning Macro Photographs with tutorials

We are often bothered and eluded by the large things like landscape, river views, lakes etc. but we rarely look to the smallest things in our world. Macro photography is one of those medium which makes you feel that even the smallest things have many parts to play in this globe. Macro photography means that image on the film plane is nearly equal to the size of the object. The lenses designed for macro photography are very sharp at macro focal length. Recently, the term Macro Photography is used at market level to state that: being able to focus on an object close enough, so that when a print is made the image is almost of the same size as the object itself.

Equipment Needed-What Kind of Camera

Opting for Point and shoot cameras will be a good choice indeed. These cameras have great ability to deliver a good image, but for a better result it is wise to shift for single-lens reflex cameras. These allow you to attach special Macro Lenses which further gives you the opportunity to see what you have on the digital Sensor.

Few things to follow

1-If you attach a telephoto extender between your camera body and lens A 1.4x or 2x , it converter, it gives you a far better and large image along with macro capabilities. Due to this extender a long time is need for the exposure and to reach the light on the digital sensor.
2-Macro lenses are those lenses which are specially designed for this purpose, sometimes it is also regarded as micro lens by the manufacturer. The later term is specifically more accurate than the former, but alas! We called it Macro more often. This lens provide you with consistent high optical quality while taking the macro shots , since they continuously change the formulae each time you do more focus .
There are different kinds of Macro lens

  • i) 50-60 mm range- used for taking products photographs
  • ii) 90-105mm range- used for normal insects , tress, plants and small objects
  • iii) 150-200 range gives you high power- typically used for insects, birds, plants,

Technical Consideration

Depth of Field

There is a primary requirement for the field is: it should be of lower depth, as it turns out to be essential to focus critically and systematically on the most important part of the subjects. Small sensor bridge cameras and compact digital cameras have an coincidental advantage on macro photography due their inherently deeper depth of field. It has been observed that with the decrement of actual focal length of the lens the depth fades and so these compact digital cameras can easily get to the magnification of a 420 mm lens along with greater depth of field.

Lightning

It is really a common problem faced by many photographers during their projects or work. There are some lenses which touch the object while focusing, now it is really difficult to place a light source between the object and camera and so making it impractical for maximum close-up photography. Even a normal lens (50mm on a 35mm camera) can focus on an object to such an extent that lightning remains difficult . So to overcome this incredible Telephoto macro Lenses come to aid for the photographers. This lens has a focal length of 100 to 200 mm and permits sufficient distance for the light to reach the object.

Lost In Colors Macro Photography

Extremely beautiful picture! Roses are my favorite flower, and this one is particularly great. I love the droplets of water, they really add a nice contrast to the flower. The green and red colors are also great, and I love how the droplets are green instead of clear. Red and green colors also put me in the mood for Christmas. The center of the flower is wonderful, and I love how in changed colors. Also, the shadows under the petals add a nice touch to the overall photo. Despite it’s beauty, it’s definitely not the most original piece out there. Overall, it’s a really excellent piece.
