Take a Step Back From That Small Flower

Step Back - I recently discovered that when the flowers are really tiny, the macro photography setting works best from farther away. So step a little back and zoom in to get the best focus on that tiny flower. As we nature lovers know, some wild flowers are amazingly beautiful when you bring them up close.

This step is where using the LCD for taking your pictures really pulls its weight. You can actually see your tiny flower come in and out of focus as you move your camera back. Take your time with this and eventually you will be snapping faster and faster. Once I realized the smaller flowers are better from a distance it became second nature to check my display for clarity.

See you next time when we explore Tip Number Five - Play with the brightness.
