7 Amazing Tips for Capturing Amazing Close-Up of Mother Nature:

1. Bounce the Flashlight

Sometimes the flashlight you are using might be too harsh, even when diffused and can produce unwanted shadows.  You can try to balance the flash with the natural light available for filling the shadows.

2. Make it Colourful

In a picture the bold colours always look vibrant and prominent and light or muted colours always look a bit toned down. Thus try to enhance the bold colours in post processing as the bold colours always end up attracting the eyes of the spectators.

3. Extension Tubes are Very Handy

These are hollow conduits without the optics that can be placed in between the body of the camera and the lens. This permits you to be closer to the subject.

4. Time to Tone Down the Inbuilt Flash Light

The inbuilt flashlight should be toned down by covering the flash light with a clean piece of white cloth for capturing better quality of close-up pictures.

5. Time is of the Essence

The best is if you can spend some time looking around and trying to notice the opportunity that might be magical for capturing close-ups.

6. Use Continuous Mode

The Continuous Modehelps to capture uninterrupted snaps of the subject and can be used to capture picture perfect close-up.
