Trying Out Macro Mode on Your New Digital Camera

Nature is at its best when you look at it close up, and there are pictures out there just begging to be taken. The closeup or macro mode (usually identified as a flower on the button) is a wonderful way to look at this miniature world!


Few amateurs realize the significance of using this technology in their photography. Think back to being a child and lying in the grass checking out all the little things you see -- each of those things is a photograph.

There is an entire world that you won't see if you don't get close up to it; a world of tiny creatures that can be quite photogenic! You probably don't want to lie on your belly in the grass nowadays, but try turning on the closeup or macro mode on your new digital camera.

Explore the world through a new angle; there are images out there that are just waiting to be photographed by you. Exciting new images like nothing you have ever seen before. Closeup or macro mode is fascinating, and the ease with a digital camera makes it all the more fun to work with.

Look for the closeup or macro mode icon, turn it on, and get as close to the object as you can. When you find something you want to photograph, use the view finder and get right where you want to be for the picture. Hold the shutter button halfway down -- this allows the camera to focus, and the confirmation light lets you know when to take your shot.

Remember that with closeup photography, your depth of field is very shallow. Focus on the part of the object you want to shoot, and allow the rest of the image to be soft; it will be a little fuzzy and out of focus.
