Macro-photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.
I have to start off by admitting that I thought this seemed easy in theory, but it was by far the most time consuming of any photo so far in both set-up and execution.
Because of that, today I will be brief…
This photo is of a non-descript bloom purchased at King Sooper’s this morning for $1.50. To capture this image I used my Canon 6D and Canon MACRO Lens EF 100mm 1:2.8 USM set to MF. I have my dial set to Aperture Priority Mode, ISO at 200, Aperture f2.8. Even though I had great natural light and all of our indoor lights on, I still used my TT560 SPEEDLITE flash. In addition to the set-up I shot this RAW and made multiple edits during processing. I must admit I’m pretty pleased with my very first Macro shot.
