“In this micro world, the colors are so vivid; shapes are intricate, life is very different, nothing is trivial.” Raj says. Macro photos are fascinating!
This week’s lesson includes focusing, distance focus, zoom capability, and many more. He also provides his several beautiful close up/macro images and some cool tips and tricks. Now I know it’s not all about a macro lens.
I started practice close up/macro shots when I got the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 (it’s not a macro lens). This weed image below was captured with 1/160 sec, f5,6, iso 1250 (Av mode):
1/100, f2.8, iso 200 (Av) for this rose image:
It took me a while to get familiar the canon 60 mm macro lens, and I still don’t know how the best to adjust the distance focus.
1/80, f2.8, iso125 (Av) for this blue flower:
Sometimes I get lucky. 🙂
All photos were taken with Canon 7D II. For Raj’s XDrive Photo Lesson – 8 lesson: Close up and Macro click here.
Raj takes time to provide comment and suggestions for improvement for each of our photos. At the end of the month, he provides an interactive monthly Learn Photography Review. Thank you so much, Raj! Looking forward to hearing from you.
