Learning About Macro Photography

Macrophotography is a close-up photography or techniques retrieval of objects at close range, the object macrophotography usually very small, where the size of objects on the negative is larger than life size / original, with a ratio of 1:1 up to 25x (25:1) enlargement. The last one can be categorized into the Extreme Macrophotography which takes a lot of tools and special techniques to get it.

Macro is the term used manufacturer Canon, while the micro is used by Nikon. Understanding of both same thing in the world of photography.

In a series of EF lenses, including lenses EF-S, there some macro lenses with different focal length and maximum magnification photography varied to adjust all the subjects and situations. Macro lens not only serves to bring distance, but can also be used as a lens for shooting landscape and portrait photography.

It is important to note when taking photos with a macro lens is to control depth of field. Taking photos with a 1:1 macro lens size of 180mm will provide depth of field is less than 1mm (maximum aperture). Making the area behind the subject blur allows us to highlight the subject.

When taking a picture of a product or object and want to ensure that the whole subject of focus, position the camera so the location of the subject parallel to the lens plane camera. For that need to be considered carefully, because if the camera is shaking all of a sudden though only caused by the position adjustment of the smallest focus, the result will be out-of-focus photography.

This is the most important basic rules include while the central focus of interest rates when taking photos or animal eyes when taking pictures of animals. If area that is to difokus small, autofocus can be used at different locations depending frame. More high magnification image of the more higher the risk of shaking the camera when the lens using a long focal length.

The general way to determine speed for handheld photography is the minimum shutter speed limit 1/focal length. But for macro photography, this does not applicable unassisted electronic flash or a tripod solid and the use of cable release to stop the blur caused by movement.
