Rick’s Macro Tips 

                              Mr. Macro (Rick)


1. Use a tripod and cable release/self timer to reduce camera vibration.

2. Use mirror lock-up if your camera has this function, again for less

   camera vibration.

3. Set a small aperture value (f/16 – 22) for best sharpness throughout

    the subject.

4. Use a low ISO setting (100 – 200) for best image quality.

5. Choose your focus point carefully; manual focusing is best.

6. Use your depth of field preview button to see how the captured

    image will appear.

7. “Fill the frame“, but don’t “cut off” your subject!
