Macro Photography Techniques – Digital Photography 1 on 1 (#31) Video

or copy the link – Macro Photography Techniques and Tips – In this episode number 31, Mark will show you how to take those up close photos! Macro photography techniques allow unique opportunities to produce creative and dramatic photos and Mark shows us a couple examples. Macro Photography On Wiki: – “Quote” Macrophotography is close-up photography, usually of very small subjects. Classically a macrophotograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative is greater than life size. However in modern use it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.[1] The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or image sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, a macro lens is classically one lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1, although it now refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1. Outside of technical photography and film-based processes, where the size of the image on the negative or image sensor is the subject of discussion, the finished print or on-screen image more commonly lends a photograph its macro status. For example, when producing a 6×4 inch (15×10 cm) print using 135 format film or sensor, a life-size result is possible with a lens having only a 1:4 reproduction ratio. Reproduction ratios much greater than 1:1 are considered to be the realm of photomicroscopy, often achieved with digital microscope. “End quote

Ohhhh… The lovely red ring on the lens… Only if I could afford it easily…

amazinggadgets says:

Cheaper macro, use extension tubes. Also, if you buy shutter release 3rd party, you can get them under $10…

Ryan A. Lanzetta says:

I got better results from a 50mm 1.8g that I held backwards on my camera and also held open the aperture dial.

bitcrushnpranksta says:

LukyQuad says:

Thx 😉 (Sorry, was in a really bad mood that day)

VampireTech says:

Then you should see how Thomas Shahan gets his macro shots. They’re extreme and done with equipment everyone can afford.

TZoltanPhotography says:

What brand tripod and head is this? Manfrotto?

agentshep23 says:

Get yourself some cheap extension tubes (about $80) and stick them on behind what ever lens you already have. Thats all you need to get started. The extension tubes will allow your current lens to focus on an object/bug about 2″ from the front of the lens which can have great results.

elisayshello1 says:

thank you!I’ll try this during the holiday as I have coming up test I need to do before the holiday starts!

rcfalcon56MkII says:

Why were your photos crap? Were they out of focus or underexposed? Maybe instead of blaming Mark you should examine your technique and learn how to use your camera. If you don’t understand exposure you will be in for more disappointments than successes.

KellyAnn Sullivan says:

This guy really says really a lot. I mean really!

Larizag says:

@nazaretd For macro photography or photography in general, u need to know about the 3 categories which will help u. 1.Aperture 2.Shutter speed and 3.ISO
If you familiarize yourself on that categories, you will be more excite for taking pictures.
Lastly, you need to know Depth Of Field.

progfan71 says:

A good alternative to buying a very expensive macro lens are extension tubes, that can be bought for $10.
