I've noticed that many guests buy a new camera for their vacation, but they don't learn how to use the Macro.
Macro is a setting that allows you to focus up close on things like flowers and reptiles. The Macro world in the desert is fascinating! With Macro, you can put your lens within a couple of inches of the object, and it will focus.
The Macro icon on your camera is a flower. If you learn how to call up the Macro setting, you will open your options up to a whole new level. I tell my guests to use the Macro setting, but it is too stressful to figure out how to call it up when you have a cute little horned lizard right in front of you. Take the time before your tour.
Here are some examples of Macro Photography:
Pull that instruction booklet out and brush up on the Macro setting and you will be amazed at what you will capture with your camera.
