Blogging just like having a newspaper company, regularly posted article to blog, give photo to blog to best describe the content. A blogger actually is a mix of content author, editor, illustrator, photographer, and also blog marketer. It is a must for blogger to be all those positions, a blogger running his/her blog indepently do all those blogging process, plan a content, write, take picture, editing, checking and fine tuning, then publish the content. The also very important for blogger, he/she has to promote the blog to others / visitors, those all the process for bloggers.
This time, i would like to share a simple say to make a macro photo with a small pocket digital camera (not Digital SLR Camera). See this photo below for the result of my simple macro photo technique.
To take picture of an object, you have to determine the object first, different object may use different technique You can use this simple technique to take a photo for blog content, or for your online shop if you running an online shop.
Take photo without tripod
If using flash you can directly take photo without tripod, since the auto shutter speed can adjust the light condition. But usually the results are less satisfactory due to the effects of excessive light hitting the object photographed, the image will be less natural, and can not reflect all its natural color.
Use tripod for better result.
Switch off the flash and adjust the natural light from the sun passing through the windows, i often use the sun light besides a windows to make natural photo take. When taking picture at the afternoon or even evening you may need extra light. for better result, non flickeing, you may use CREE LED Torch flooded to your object. See the picture that i had detach the projector of CREE LED Torch to make a floody light, not a focused beam created by reflector.
Adjust the appropriate ISO
I used to adjust the ISO parameter of the camera to have natural photo. I will adjust from ISO 40 to 1600 based on light conditions. The higher the value of ISO, you need a tripod to stabilize the camera. Tripod has price start from IDR 150.000 (about $15), the expensive the more durable, please choose the best tripod for durability.
Adjust the composition to create best result.
Thought only taken by pocket digital camera, but you can produce a vivid, natural coloured image. It takes time for you to master this simple techniqu, but practise makes better.
Any comment please…..
