Assignment

What is a macro photo? Technically, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the image sensor is life size (1:1) or greater - or in other words, making tiny things larger than life. For our project, however, don't worry about ratios or anything like that, just GET IN CLOSE to something small, and we shall call it macro! Macro photography makes one think about composition and lighting in ways completely different from other genres like portraiture, landscape, or street photography. The main technical difficulties faced by macro photographers are having a very small depth of field to work with (just a small area of sharp focus) and secondly, a lack of light to illuminate your subject correctly. You may want to make your f/stop a higher number for this reason, or take a small step back, and as for the adding light, a simple lamp or off camera flash should help with that!  Don't feel restricted to insects and tiny organisms, you can get some amazing macro shots with liquids, electronic components, the inside of a watch, and so many more subjects. Your composition could be relatively abstract by looking at patterns and textures, or you could choose to show us the finer details that one might often overlook. Many cellphones nowadays also have the capability of taking macro shots or near-macro shots. Look for the macro symbol (often shown as a flower Macro icon - Download on Iconfinder on Iconfinder ) in your camera app of choice. (OFTEN YOUR PHONE TAKES BETTER MACRO SHOTS THAN YOUR CAMERA, but don't quote me on that please) You're going to want to take a lot of exposures to find a good shot, so go right ahead and keep practicing and improving. And remember the macrographer's adage: If you don't look ridiculous taking the shot, you are probably doing it wrong.
