What is macro photography?
macro and depth of field
You need to produce 20 photographs.
You need to ensure that you images are sharp and not blurred and have a shallow depth of field. Use your knowledge of composition, aperture and shutter speed when photographing.
10 of your photographs must be from the shopping list provided.
Second time round you will be using deep depth of field.
In groups you need to guess the objects in photographs!
- Macro photography is most often thought of as 'close-up' photography.
- It allows smaller objects to appear much larger than life.
why use macro?
- It's an explorative method of seeing the smaller things in life.
- It's easily accessible.
- Macro does not fall in to any specific photographic genre, like some techniques do.
depth of field
- Depth of field is the amount of distance between the nearest and farthest objects that appear in acceptably sharp focus in a photograph.
- Typically, there are two types; shallow depth of field and deep depth of field.
For macro photography, you would be dealing with a shallow of field.
depth of field
- A shallow depth of field focuses on a specific subject within a composition, rather than everything in the frame.
- This allows for the subject to be more prominent and objects within the background (or foreground) are blurred.
depth of field
- A deep depth of field focuses on all aspects within a composition, meaning all parts of the image will be in focus.
- This is most useful when taking landscape photographs, but can be applied to other aspects, too.
1. Examine the purpose of macro within photography.
2. Identify both shallow and deep depth of field within photographs.
3. Experiment with macro photography to produce your own images.
In your photography sketchbooks, you need to produce 1 page on macro photography and a page each on shallow and deep depth of field.
You can include your own photographs from this session, as well as other research.
10 of your macro images must be of the following;
- something yellow
- something you use everyday
- a body part
- book pages
- something pink
- something with an unusual texture
- something natural
- something that begins with the letter 'B'.
- something pointy.
would macro photography
have within media?
An extension tube is a hollow, light-tight tube that fits between your lens and your camera mount.
It moves your lens further from the camera, and the front element closer to the subject.
The closer you can focus, the more magnification you get.
There are also different lenses that are designed for macro photography.
