Macro photography just gives a unique perspective for things most people don’t look at super closely. Indoor macro a little more challenging because you have to use manual zoom and move in just right to make for a steady and clear shot. Beyond that, you need lots and lots of lighting. Macro images can’t have a super short depth of field because otherwise everything would be blurred. My settings were ISO 800, shutter speed 1/200 and f-stop f.7.1, again, this is for indoor macro photography, for outdoor, your settings will be different. For these images I used a Cannon rebel with a 10mm macro filter.

It’s fun to play around with water droplets in macro photography because sometimes you get at really cool reflection appearing in the image. For the flowers, I had to get my lighting super close to the object itself, and then I had my camera lens almost touching the object. This is what helps you accomplish that crispness in your macro photography images.

If you couldn’t already tell, I had a theme of sewing with these macro photography images. That is for a Christmas project. Turns out, there’s lots of different nicknacks in my sewing kit that make for a great indoor macro image.
