Using the macro function on your camera can open up a whole new world

If your camera has a macro mode (most cameras do, and it is usually a flower symbol) trying turning it on and discover a whole new world of close up photography.

Please bear in mind the depth of field (what is in focus) will be very restricted, so use your smallest aperture (largest F number) to get the biggest depth of field available to you.

This is another area of photography that is easier with a tripod.

Beck also runs beginners photographic training courses.
