I’ve read books, watched YouTube videos and read several websites. An important aspect of a macro shot is your DOF(Depth of Field). The most memorable information I got was from a fellow blogger Park Preview. In their Photography for Beginners section, Part 5 – Depth of Field, is not just a good read it’s a good bookmark.
After wrestling with my internet connection, I wrapped up my macros today with plenty of natural light. I definitely found some more limitations with Nikon. This is a good thing. I now know how far I can push the Coolpix P530 when taking macro shots. I needed some pictures of some rock samples I’ve found, so they are the macro subjects. Here are a few shots before any editing.
