This week I decided to focus my learning on close up and focus shots. This is also known as macro photography! These shots are made for the photographer to get pictures up close to show precise detail.
I found it a bit easier to take close up shots with my phone using portrait mode.Portrait mode is on is on Apple 7 plus and newer phones. This option allows the camera to focus on just one object and blur out the background making the object extremely clear. I had to watch a video on YouTube on how to change my camera to be able to take clear close shots. I found this a bit confusing changing and fooling around with all the settings on my camera. One tip that I found to help a lot was making sure the flash was on and staying as sturdy as I could while taking the photo. Personally I found that my iPhone and camera are pretty equal to how clear they take pictures. What do you think?
I decided not to worry about editing these first set of photos because I wanted to show how much detail is shown in the original photos.
Here are some different shots I got from both my camera and iPhone! I can’t believe how much technology has changed over the years and how great the cameras on our phones have gotten. Pretty crazy I think ! Everything we need is right at our fingertips.
Is there any other tips or advice you could give me for trying something else with macro photography ?
