Get Close

2002-06-16-11

It's time to get up close and personal with the subject of your photo. Whatever the subject may be.

Getting right up close achieves several different things. First, it allows you to see the subject in a whole new way. Objects that are fairly commonplace look completely different when you get right up next to them.

Second, you can see details when you take photos up close that you can't even see with the naked eye. Once you take a closeup of a flower or leaf, you may suddenly notice all the small bugs on it when you look at the photo on your monitor.

The only trick to this type of photography is making sure your camera has a macro focus setting. If you don't switch your camera to macro focus, every shot you take will look blurry.

Other than that, just get out there and get right up next to things. The results of this type of photography can be very surprising sometimes.
