What comes first if you hear a macro photo ? Macro photos are photos that are able to present the object captured in its original size according to the sensor size or actual size. In short is a photograph of small objects that if we look are indeed small in reality, but when we take pictures, in the resulting photo can be large.
Macro photos depend on the lens, both for smartphones and DSLR cameras. Here we talk about the quality / specifications of the lens itself. Often we read the specifications when we buy lenses or buy a smartphone, sometimes written on the cardboard that Samsung has a 13 Mega Pixel / 13MP camera and so on.
The resulting image quality also depends on the camera sensor or photo resolution. The camera sensor is an image capture sensor also known as CCD (Charged Coupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) and the latest BSI-CMOS (Back Side Illumination CMOS) which consists of more millions of pixels (MP-mega pixels).
The lens for macro photography is quite expensive, the construction is specially made and of course different from other lenses in general. The main difference usually lies in the magnification ratio or lens magnification and lens focal length.
Canon 100mm f / 2.8 lenses have a zoom level of 1: 1. This includes standard macro lenses, where the magnification ratio reaches 1: 1.
Tips for using macro photography techniques properly:
1. Photographing using macro photography techniques requires patience. Imagine when photographing objects like insects that are always moving. Imagine how difficult it is to be able to get photos with maximum results.
2. Photos include visual communication media, sometimes contrary to our own principles. We want to take pictures of intact objects as seen, but macro photos actually show a small part of what is.
3. Focus. Focus on the object to maximize shooting results.
Note the photos above certainly arise a sense of exploration in self to take pictures of objects / objects that are sometimes considered normal. Such as stones, insects, leaves and etc.
