I have listed a few handy tips to help you get the most out of macro photography.
Lens Options for Macro Photography
Lenses play a big role when it comes to capturing the details in macro photography. The general focus of a macro lens is around 50mm - 200mm. Using a simple 50-60mm will give you enough subject to lens distance to get a great shot.
150-200mm lenses can be a bit more expensive than the 50-60mm lenses but they can help you capture closer shots of your subject matter.
The composition of any image is important to how the audience perceives the whole image. When it comes to macro photography the composition has the same importance. Think about what it is you are trying to draw your audience's attention to. Maybe you have taken a macro image of a beetle on a flower. In this case, the beetle should be the aspect of the image that draws peoples eyes in for a closer look.
Altering the background can also dramatically change the appearance and perception of an image. Try altering the background of an image either in the editing process or physically by moving the subject matter around.
To bring out an image full potential, the focal point of the image needs to be just right. For instance, if you were to shift the focal point of a flower from the petals to the centre of the flower, the whole images composition would be changed letting the viewer connect with the image differently.
Macro Photography: Our Conclusion
Macro photography down to its very basics is no different to any other form of photography. Just remember to pick your point of focus and try different compositions to see which suits the subject better and which is more pleasing to the eye. Patience is key and it takes practice to master any form of photography including macro photography, just keep shooting!
