Macro Photography in simple terms is called ‘close-up’ photography. It is about taking close-up pictures of various animals and natural elements. Macro actually means specific, some smallest percentage of a part! Human eyes tend to see things from the upper level, like we can see an ant seeping in a water droplet, but we fail to see the process through which the water droplets go into the stomach of the ant. This is where macro photography comes in. It shows us the very little details which are usually not seen by our naked eyes!
In macro photography the smallest object becomes the main subject, while the rest is used to give a better surrounding to the subject! Patterns and textures also take center stage in macro photography. When taking macro photographs, you easily use the Macro feature provided in many DSLR cameras. Also, for taking a perfect macro shot you might also need to the tripod. Many a times you may have to keep your camera on the ground level, at that time using the Live Mode should be a better choice for many photographers.
Always try to use Flash whenever possible. At most times try to use manual focus when shooting birds in flight. Be patient. This is the most important virtue in any photography genre. Last macro photography tip would be to try and experiment as much as possible. Try to click lots of pictures and then select the best of them.
