Small Creature Photography

The theme this week is small creatures (macro or close-up) and I am really looking forward to it! Every since I got my first digital camera a feel years ago I have had so much fun using the macro settings and taking close up pictures. It truly is amazing the pictures that you can take and the different perspectives that you can see. Give it try and see what use can come up with. Try to take a picture of something very small.

Suggestions:   -When taking pictures of small things try using a tripod to reduce shaking.
                                   -When snapping the picture, barely push down your shutter release button to also reduce shaking.
                              -Hold a good inch or two away and zoom in so you don't disturb your object and you stay in focus.
