A quick lesson on the macro setting

I’ve owned and lost an unfortunate amount of digital cameras in my lifetime, but I’ve never really utilized the macro setting until recently. Now I’m no fancy photographer, but it really makes a difference in taking pictures. When I was photographing my recent past dish as posted below, I noted that some of the pictures weren’t as clear as I would like. That’s when I realized the macro setting was off.

Because, as the saying goes, pictures speak louder than words, here are some examples of what a difference the macro setting makes:

  • Macro off clamsno.jpg
  • Macro on clams1.jpg

As for flash and all other settings, they were the same. Generally when taking food pictures I leave the flash off and use the soft background setting.
