Learn to use your Macro before you come on tour.

Hi Friends,

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.


  1. Dad that's great! The pictures are phenomenal. It really makes me miss that area!

  2. Wow! These pictures are truly amazing. Beautiful area and you have talent to capture the scenes!

  3. Love this post Brad ...those close ups are amazing - but the scorpion one scares me a little. That's a bit too close for me :)

  4. Great post Brad. You're talented in so many ways.
    We will be looking forward to your future posts.

    Don't know why the Jeff (Google)popped up. Do you know how to replace Jeff's name with mine?
