One of the great things about macro photography is that there are wonderful images waiting to be captured almost anywhere. As soon as you shoot close up to something everyday and ordinary, you enter an exciting new world of interesting images.
Macro Photography Tips part 1 we looked at the concept of macro out in the garden, here in part 2 lets have a look round the kitchen and see what we can find. Light is more controllable indoors with lovely soft directional window light and the addition of a small reflector you can easily create some eye catching images.
A tripod is a must to ensure your camera is still, depth of field is easier to control with one too because there’s no movement and you’ll often be working with slow shutter speeds. Careful focussing using single point auto focus and playing with your apertures to change depth of field will yield some amazing images from almost anything, olive oil, manikins and even a stainless steel toaster all come together beautifully in close up.
