Taking Macro pictures with the camera is really quite simple. All you need to do, keep the mode dial on program. This will give you the most amount of flexibility as far as ISO and white balance. These are very important things to change every now and again.
Set your focus switch to the center option. This will optimize the lens for Macro photography and for the best close up, what you want to do is actually zoom back using the zoom lever right here. Zoom all the way back and physically step closer to the subject in order to fill the screen.
Like with the any picture, go ahead and press the shutter button halfway, wait for the camera to lock focus and you can recompose and press the shutter button the rest of the way to take a picture. If you are to close to the subject or even to far away from the subject, the macro focus won’t work. Also, if you’re zoomed in to the subject and you’re too close, you can press the shutter button halfway and you will see that I am not able to lock focus.
What you want to do again zoom back, step away from the subject just a little bit, press the shutter button again and you should be able to find the focus. If you still can’t find the focus, repeat that just release, step back a little bit more, press the shutter button again and you should be able to find the focus. Once you found that focus point, recompose the image and press the shutter button the rest of the way to take a picture.
