Re: close up photography

Do you mean camera equipment for taking close ups or do you want suggestions for subject matter?

Re: close up photography

Well I would say just about anything, if you get really close up to subjects they take on a whole new look, plants, fabric, textures of surfaces, try looking around where yo are sat right now and I bet there are loads of subjects. A close up section of yor keyboard for example with a shallow depth of field. Put some side lighting on it to giv nice shadows etc.

Re: close up photography

With macro/close up shots what you photograph is only limited by your imagination, everyday household objects can viewed in a new light.

Here are some examples to start you off but remember, we must see the results!

A bread knife:



Cheese grater:



Spiders web:



Incense stick:



The possibilities are endless so have a look around you and start shooting.

Re: close up photography

Anne-Marie, as this is for college, I would look for subjects that highlight the true macro aspect, ie 1:1 reproduction. That means the subject appears on the sensor at the same size so a standard first class stamp will pretty much fill the picture allowing you to show an A3 picture of a stamp in all its detail (including the fibres of the paper at that size!)

So although there is an unlimited range of potential subjects for macro work, if you want to really show off macro to its fullest extent, try looking for some subjects that are no bigger than the size of your sensor so that they fit inside the dimensions of the picture.

This could include: a small coin, a safety pin, a sweet, an engagement ring, an insect, etc.

That type of shot is often powerful because you are showing an image of something that we usually only see very basically but now enlarged so that every little detail is shown giving the viewer an eye-opener as it were.

Hope that makes some sense.

Cheers,
Rob
