It is essential to understand macro photography first before talking about its digital side of production. Macro photography is close-up shots of small things, where doing it means using the right camera and lens.
Digital macro photography is the same except the system is different. Again, digital photography will more or less involve computers in working with post product of the image.
Digital macro photography is an interesting specialization in photography because of the challenges at stake. It is may add more expense in terms of updating to the most recent products technology can offer. While eyes can't still stretch to perceive and see detail of minute things, digital macro photography can make the merry wondering into reality.
If you are an avid fan of Discovery Channel or National Geographic, most of their documentary films indulge in macro photography whenever they shoot insects and small animals burrowing underneath the ground holes, and all other creatures almost unseen to the naked eye. Without macro photography, this world will only be associated with what our eyes can see. There is no way we may experience and grasp the texture of any insects’ hairy legs or underwater creature's slimy skin.
The promise of full detail is the major work in digital macro photography. Currently, the answer to this promise is dependent on the resolution of the digital camera you are investing on. Lens, particularly for close-up called “diopter" must come along with the purchase, and basically it is a necessary requirement.
The next is the application of effective and proper lighting to get the most of the photography detail. A crisp image goes with the essential qualifications your digital camera can give.
To achieve a professional looking digital macro photography, the following points will help:
1. You must have skill in photography including the use of lenses, filters, lighting and related accessories.
2. For macro photography, you must shoot the subject as close as possible as the effective working distance. This is all about the right distance without disturbing the subject, if in case you are shooting small insects.
3. Trial and error practice with depth of field can be achieved by using manual lens setting until the image is sharp.
4. Use the smallest aperture and fill flash, taken in a bright day. Flash must either be indirect or diffused with reflectors for better results.
After you have achieved the good macro shots, it is time to go back to the computer and do minor editing of unwanted backgrounds, specks and if there is nothing to correct, then the image can be printed as is.
