This last week I got to experiment with macro photography. Basically being said, I get a special lens filter for my camera that helped me get extremely close shots of flowers and other objects. Here’s how they ended up!
I was able to go visit my parents this last weekend and I took some pictures while I was there. Here are some of the shots that I got.
This time around I focused on adjusting the aperture of my camera. By using a wide aperture, which uses a small f-stop (like f/3.5), you can create bokeh, or background blur, to the images. Then I contrasted those images with photographs that used a small aperture which has a high f-stop (like f/22) to keep all of the images clear from the front to the back.
With that being said, let’s review how my time taking these images went.
When taking pictures, there are a variety of options that you have at your disposal. I am going to address just a few of these options in this post. Including aperture, shutter speed, and controlling ISO settings.
