Photography | Up close, in macro mode
When the weather is bad, you can always stay in and take macro pictures of your food. The Nikon D3200 has some in camera editing effects and so for this shot I tried soft focus. It’s perhaps more suitable for portraits, but doesn’t it make the chips look nice! If you want shots for photo libraries, these type of shots tend to be in demand.
You can take shots of anything close up in macro mode, just look for the symbol that looks like a flower on your mode selection dial.
The symbol looks like this. This mode is ideal for food photography, but anything close up.
My Philips Air fryer cooks good chips!
This was the basil plant on the kitchen windowsill! It was stormy outside!
This was after the sun came out. The wide aperture on the macro setting allows more light in and the subject is in focus while the background is out of focus. This mode is good for flowers, butterflies and you can even copy photos with this mode.
