Finally I took some time to try macro shots using my 70-200mm lens and the remote control! (see links at the end of this post)
Macrophotography means close-up photography, used to capture very small subjects so you must be asking yourself what’s the relation with a 70-200mm lens (mostly used for portraits and in sports).
Well, in fact this particular lens has what is called close-focus capability (not truly macro) which means that I can be at 1 meter from my subject and focus on it at 200mm focal length!
Here are some of my experiments:
- Use a tripod to have your camera still;
- Use a remote control to prevent any camera movement;
- Choose a location with lot of light;
- Set your camera to manual focus.
