Taking a macro picture is quite simple. There are only a couple of things you want to make sure that the camera is set too.
First, go ahead and press the function button to access the function menu, and we’ll go through those. I like using the manual mode. It allows me access two things like wide balance and ISO, which I used all the time.
So set it to menu mode then go down to wide balance. Make sure the wide balance is set up properly if you’re outdoors taking a picture of for example a flower set this to daylight. If you’re indoors and you’re are taking a picture of a product to something like that go ahead and set that to tungsten fluorescent whatever is going to get you the best color possible.
Okay, press the function button to the escape function menu. Now with macro images I don’t like using the flash because it seems like the flash usually over powers or is too strong when I’m focusing on something very, very close, so I turn that off just go ahead and press the wide navigation of the flash button it’s right here to get to the different options and scroll to flash off.
So the flash is turned off. My ISO because the flash is turned off and maybe for example in a forest and there’s a whole out of light, so I need to increase the ISO or maybe outdoors and there’s a bunch of light so you need to decrease the ISO. But change the ISO accordingly because you’re not using the flash press the up navigation button here and go up. If you are in a low lit situation change the ISO move for that up in order to have a fast enough shutter speed or if you are outdoors and there’s a plenty of light on your subject try to use a 80 or 100 because that will produce better color and a better quality image. So only if you need to move it up.
Finally, press the macro button its right here on the left just press the left button and then move over to the left to choose macro. And this is going to allow to focus on subjects that are very close to the lens, so once that set it’s very, very important press the shadow button halfway in order to lock focus first because you may not want your subject to be in the center of the frame. So for example, I want Mr. Potato heads eye to be on focus I’ll press the shoot button halfway. The camera is found the focus point, and I’m going to reposition the camera, recomposed my image and now I can take the picture. Press the shot button the rest of the way and the picture will be taken.
