Photography Monthly's tip week: Making the most of macro, Tip 1
New to Photography Monthly are our weekly themed tips to tell you all you need to know about making it in the industry or just taking better photos.
This week's theme is Making the Most of Macro, where we share all our know-how on getting the best macro images.
Monday is day one, our first tip of the week, and we’ll be exploring switching to manual focus.
Switching to manual focus:
When using autofocus it can sometimes struggle with trying to determine what you want it to focus on. It might get there eventually but it’s a lot better just to stick with manual, which you can use to focus more precisely.
Getting the hang of manual focus at macro range can take some time to master if you are not used to it, so try photographing static objects like flowers or fungi – you can see some great examples of fungi macro photography in the next Wild Britain feature in our October printed issue.
When you feel more confident with your manual macro mastery then have a go at capturing moving objects, such as dragonflies and other insects.
Stay alert for our second macro tip of the day, tomorrow. Until then, why not upload your macro photography to our online gallery? It could be selected as our photo of the day, appearing on our blog and social media networks.
