I'm trying to figure out what "macro" does.

Oh, macro is fun!!! If you have questions, shoot me an email. I'm getting to know it fairly well....

The short version: it lets you put your camera lens practically up against something tiny (no zoom!) and get those up-close details that it won't let you focus on when you use zoom instead.

I was using macro on my bee shots, most of my flower shots, etc. You'll love it!!

Well for one, it's not this picture! LOL

It's for getting up close shots. Like of ONE of those flowers.

Pretty flowers!

Those are beautiful flowers. Using your macro would be perfect for getting all the details on just one of the flowers in this picture. Pretty picture.

Beautiful picture! I believe macro is for getting a really close-up shot..like one of the flowers, or sometimes even just an eyelash :)

Lovely white flowers! Perfect for Easter week.

That you for all the pointers. I've been trying to get macro to do what you've said it does, but I only get a big blur. I'll keep trying, though....maybe one of the next 50 attempts will work.

Those are so lovely and delicate. I have a macro lens too, and I've noticed that you have to really find the "sweet" spot with it,then you will be amazed at what you'll see! :)

Jennifer, Kathy has it right. Too close = big blur. Too far = not really macro. Get as close as you'd like, and then s-l-o-w-l-y back off until your subject jumps into focus. And don't use zoom, that messes it up (at least on my camera...). You'll get it! Just keep shooting and don't worry when you delete 75% (or more!) of your attempts -- I know I do the same!
