Macro photography captures images in which the subject is extremely close-up to the camera lens. While fancy camera lenses exist for this purpose, many point and shoot cameras also have a macro setting. No matter what tools you use, this objective will have you noticing details that are often overlooked.
1) Watch the above video from Mike Brown for a short introduction to macro photography. If you'd like to go more in depth, this introduction to macro photography from Tim Cooper and B & H is also great.
2) Take a walk around the neighborhood and experiment with macro photography. The more shots you take the better!
3) Share your best macro photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tags #QuestScouts and #Macro.
Remember, if you post to a public Instagram or Twitter account with the tag #QuestScouts your photo will show up on our Scout Board for other Quest Scouts to view and interact with.
