the world of macro and what s inside
The World of Macro and What’s Inside
  • What is “Macro Photography”
  • Equipment to achieve true macro
    • Which lens should I use?
    • Backyard (Jerry-Riggin it) macro methods
  • Lighting the scene can get pretty mean!!!
    • Short flash duration by wider aperture.
  • Supporting the shot, tripod and stance.
  • Recommended camera settings
what is macro photography
What is “Macro Photography”
  • Macro Photography is the process of taking a photography where the subject is the same size on the sensor as it is in real life. This is called 1:1 magnification.
  • Ex. Canon 50D sensor is 22.3mm x 14.9mm.
  • 22.3mm/22.3mm

=1:1 magnification

  • 22.3mm/3.25mm

=6.86:1 magnification

compact slr cameras
Compact & SLR Cameras
  • Compact cameras allow the lens to focus at closer distances.
    • Close-up filters for compact cameras (usually don’t achieve 1:1)
  • Digital SLR Cameras have theability to attach separate lenseswith dedicated macro settings.
  • Extension tubes are also helpful.

Thank you B&H!!!!

choosing the right gear
Choosing The Right Gear
  • Working distance
    • Longer focal length = longer working distance.
  • Size of subject and end result size
    • Longer lenses may not magnify as much as shorter macro lenses
  • Canon 100mm macro has about a 2’ working distance for butterflies, 1’ working distance at 1:1 ratio.
lighting the scene
Lighting the scene
  • Flash
    • Exposure, ettl cord, Flash bracket, Diffusers
  • The closer the flash is to the subject, the “larger” it will appear, giving more diffused lighting.
  • Shoot aperture or shutter priority, or manual mode. Expose for background, let flash expose foreground.
  • Wider aperture = shorter flash duration.
reversing lenses
Reversing lenses
  • Reversing lenses onto the front of another
    • Ex. 100mm macro to 50mm = 2X life size (2:1)
    • Smaller front lens = less working distance but greater magnification.
  • Stop down front lens before mounting to retain smaller aperture.
  • Reversing couplers are available.
stance tripod use
Stance & Tripod Use
  • I will demonstrate…a little bit without looking too stupid…
  • Tripod =  unless you are very calm and patient…aka, not many of us.
recommended camera settings
Recommended Camera Settings
  • Aperture priority or Shutter priority?
    • Up to 1:1, use between F5-F11, Shutter 1/200, ISO 100. Adjust ISO to give F5 or smaller aperture.
  • Tough background exposure?
    • Exposure (EC) and flash (FEC) compensation
    • Switch to Manual Mode if conditions are stable.
