Our friends at Photography Life have just published a new article, Hand-Held Close-Up Photography, that I wrote for the website.
NOTE: Click on images to enlarge.
This article features a small selection of plant/flower and butterfly images captured hand-held in available light at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory.
It also contains some tips that readers can use when using their gear to capture close-up photography images. A link is provided that will take you to this new article.
I will be publishing some examples of close-up photography captured with extension tubes as well as using a close-up lens here on my blog within the next week or so.
If you enjoyed this article and would like to learn more about the Nikon 1 system, you may want to have a look at our eBook, The Little Camera That Could. It illustrates the capability of the Nikon 1 system through hundreds of original photographs. There is also commentary and tips about the Nikon 1 system. The cost is $9.99 Canadian.
