Four tips for macro photography

Macro photographer Rick Lieder shares his tips on how to shoot macro.

  • First of all you need to have good tools, a good macro lens. The closer you are to your subject, the less depth of field you will get, sometimes it may go down to one millimeter. By all means you need a tripod to keep your lens and camera steady. In cases when you cannot use a tripod, a lens with vibration control really helps.
  • Try to get to a lower angle and shoot up. You need to be at the same level as your subject.
  • Find a dramatic contrast so that your subject pops up from your background.
  • Use manual focus only because no auto focus can know where you want your focus to be.
