Macro Photography


When shooting macro photos I always try to keep the subject simple and with large aperture (f<4) the fuzzy background usually make the subject stand out. Of course, it will be nice the surrounding color blends well with the subject. One other thing I love to do is shooting into the sun that often times creates a magical effect to the subject. I used Nikon D600 camera with Tamron 90mm macro lens.
