Macros, or getting in a bit closer

stampAs well as taking wide angle shots of landscapes I’ve always wanted to get in close to my subject, to do this properly takes a dedicated macro lens but most lenses on digital cameras will have a macro capability so until I’m rich enough to buy the lenses that I need like most I must make do.2014-(110) Flowers seemed the most obvious subject to try first as shown in the examples attached. 2014-(133)Obviously stability is a prime here as I found that the slightest movement when in this close can cause a lot of movement on the image so a tripod is considered essential though it can be one of the smaller desktop models as the subject is only inches away from the lens and it allows a larger f stop to be set. 2014-(132)If you haven’t thought about it then I can only recommend giving it a try, you might surprise yourself.
