This week, ANNE SANDLER is our guest host. We get to learn ” What is macro photography? What is micro photography? Are they different from close-up photography?”
The image below is close up shot with 200mm lens.
A few years ago, I first learned about macro lens from a couple of my blogger friends. I bought a macro lens, and was anxious to click at the flower stigma.
Anne teaches us to use a higher F stop to get a sharp image, but at F/2.8 creating a more shallow depth of field.
I also practiced on weeds:

I even practiced on cooking spices. This one is a image of Pink Himalayan Salt with the macro lens:
