2015 Challenge, Week 45: MACRO – CAMERA

This week we are back to the macro challenges. The theme for this macro is CAMERA.

Do you have an older camera laying around anywhere? Maybe an old film camera that looks cool, but no longer works. Or an older digital camera that has been gathering dust? Now is your chance to make that old camera shine!

What if you don’t have another camera? You can always use a mirror and make a macro of the camera that is making the macro. Or try using your cell phone to shoot your bigger camera.

As a reminder: Macro photography is a type of close-up photography. Generally it means that the image on the sensor is life-size or greater. If you have a macro lens or a camera with a macro setting, you can use that. If you have a mid-range focal length lens, such as a 50mm, you can make a “poor man’s macro” by flipping it around and holding it against the camera body. Focus is achieved by moving the entire assembly close to the subject. If you are using a smartphone, the camera might have a macro focus option, or you can use something like an Olloclip macro lens. If you don’t have any macro lens options, just go for a close up image, and do what you can. Remember, photochallenge is about learning new stuff and having fun!

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2015.
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2015 Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
