Using the macro function on your camera opens up a whole new world of subjects we often miss in our busy lives. There is an endless number of subjects for macro photography in the world around us. We could spend years just shooting in our backyards and never run out of options. All you need to do is take a deep breath, slow down and look at the details around you. That and have a solid understanding of how to maximize your camera’s settings to capture that perfect shot!

This morning while having my morning cup of tea, I noticed the dew drops on a blossom nearby. The light was lovely, evenly balanced, shady light. I put down my tea and went into the house to get my camera. As I thought about the composition of my shot, I decided to use the macro function to better capture the details of dew drops.
