DSS Challenge #109 Close Ups or Macros
Welcome to Round #109 of the Dgrin Sharp Shooters Challenges.
This challenge is for all dgrin members.
It will run from Monday, August 6, 2012 8:00pm PDT time (GMT -8) on through Monday, August 20, 2012 8:00pm PDT time (GMT -8).
The theme this round for your interpretation will be: Close Ups or Macros
Lets forget about comfort zones and get up close and personal with your subject!
You do not need fancy lenses for this one, but if you have them go ahead and use them! Lets play
with the concept of close ups or macros! Close ups are when you use a standard lens and get really
close to a small item and make it larger. Sometimes even having to crop.
Macros are using extension tubes or macro lenses and really getting up close and personal with the subject to see lots of detail.
Either way its a learning experience. In the past, I have seen photogs be creative with using even a
magnifing glass to get up close.
Light, composition and sharp details are musts here.
If you do not know where to start, how about checking out the Holy Macro forum right here on dgrin! They have lots of tips in their sticky threads and will be glad to answer your questions!
There are no editing restrictions this round!
1 round 72 Hour Public Vote.

this contest period. Do not use a minimal save method (such as "save for web"), and your EXIF will be embedded in your image, no worries!
