Morning stroll with my camera around our garden result = macro shots
6th of July 2010
I find shooting macros to be very relaxing. Its one of those things I do either if I am very bored or very stressed. This time I was bored sitting alone at home. I woke up early and felt the urge to go out and walk although the weather wasn’t exactly welcoming. When I shoot macros I try to capture elements such as color and texture. Keeping in mind the placement of the subject within the frame of the photo/ aka the composition.
Fact : I prefer using the manual focus over using auto focus in general and specifically when I shoot macros.
