If you’re looking to improve your macro photography, then you should do these three things to get the best results from your photography. First, you need to keep everything steady. Second, you need to turn off any kind of image stabilization on your lens. And last, but not least, you need to be patient. After reading this article, you should be able to get sharp picture from your macro photography.

One thing that you always need to keep in mind when shooting macro is to keep everything steady. One thing that I always do when shooting macro is to use a tripod. In addition, I always use a cable release to further minimize the camera shake. And lastly, just before I press the shutter button, I always hold my breath as the tiniest breath of air can make my picture blurry.

Next, you’ll want to turn off the Image Stabilization feature on your lens. If your macro lens does not have this feature then you don’t need to worry about it. You want to turn off the image stabilization feature because that feature will keep looking for any kind of vibration, even if there is none. This will make your picture look less sharp. In some camera model, such as Nikon or Canon, the image stabilization can be turned off via the lens. On some camera model, the image stabilization can be turned off via the menu function on the camera body. You’ll need to consult your camera manual to do this task.

Lastly, you’ll need to be patient, sometimes very patient. All the best macro photographers that I know have tremendous amount of patience. This is very important to keep in mind because there are just something that you cannot control such as the weather, wind blowing to your subject, and many more things that can break your shot. When this happen, just be patient! Keep on trying and keep on shooting! Work hard, get lucky! You can also try experimenting with different angle with your shot if one angle does not work.

Let’s summarize what you have learned in this article. You have learned to keep everything steady to get a sharp macro shot, you’ll need to turn off the image stabilization feature on your lens to make it even sharper and you have learned the value of being patient when shooting macro. With this 3 tips, you should be able to get a better macro shots. Good luck with your macro photography journey and happy shooting!

The Ring Flash for Glamour and Fashion

A popular tool for the glamour and fashion photographer is the ringflash.  I'm not talking about the ring flashes used for macro photography, I'm talking about a high-powered studio strobe that can be mounted on the camera.  Similar to the macro ring flash, a ringflash used for portrait work allows the camera to shoot "through" the ring in order to achieve the desired effect. An example of a ring flash is the Alien Bees ABR-800. The effect ...

A lot of models have crossed my threshold in the past 40 years. I’m always a bit apprehensive on our first shoot.
