FLOWER OF THE DAY: MACROS – Marilyn Armstrong

Flower of the Day โ€“ October 13, 2018


I have an interesting relationship with my macro lens. Sometimes, I love it to pieces. When it decided to work, it is perfection.

Macro lenses are kind of touchy. They may focus where you want them to focus — or they may focus where they feel they should focus.

  1. Nice macros, Spike! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love Alstroemeria.

    I was feeling much the same as you, then i found out my camera has an ‘AF Area’ mode with 6 sub-functions one of which is ‘manual spot’. It lets you select a movable crosshair in your viewfinder/LCD screen which you place on the focus target. BLISS! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also used to ‘cheat’ and take some of my ‘macros’ from 6-12 feet away with a 60X zoom which gives me greater depth of field than a close-up shot would.
