Mad Photographer, Happy snapper. Amateur Photography
Photography has many uses for business, science, art and pleasure. These photos are just for fun of it - means strictly pleasure . Photographers control the camera and lens to "expose" the light recording material (such as film) to the required amount of light to form a "latent image" (on film) or "raw file" (in digital cameras) blah blah blah.... Photographers may do that, me just the other way around camera controls me I just push the button.
There is one most important rule in photography; you have to take photos every day and lots of it. You will learn quickly what part of day is best to take photos for me morning and evening are best, but for macro I like lots of light so middle of the day is pretty good.
The easiest way to do macro photos is to get one of the compact cameras, all compacts have very good macro capability easy setup and easy to use. Some examples of macro photos camera use Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40.
