RDP Friday: Macro

Fly 18 (4)

When I used the word “macro” as a tag on my photo programme, I got almost 2,000 photos as a choice, but are they really macro? It all has to do with actual sizes in the correct proportions, not just enlarged photos apparently.

The trouble with macro photos is that I have far too many, not all of them as professional looking as they should be. This fly is OK with all its details, but I have seen better photos where you can almost count his almost 3-6,000 single eyes. I have a macro lens but easier said than done. I just like taking photos, and do not really want to make a life’s work of it, but I soon discovered that taken a macro photo with a macro lens is not so easy. There are no real short cuts with telling your camera to take an automatic photo. I found that it is really a do-it-yourself job setting all the stops, focus and lighting yourself.

Wild Flowers 28.09 (15)

I found that flowers and plants are easier for a macro. They keep still and do not move so much.

Amaryllis 26.02 (2)

The sex life of an amaryllis can be quite interesting according to how close you get.

Even a side view can be inviting.

And now to extend my macro viewing to cooking the evening meal.
