Dragon that fly, Geddit geddit?

Well another short photography tip or lesson..whichever way you wanna look at it..
Again I have put the Crop Feature to good use.

I saw a Dragonfly on my car antenna, so this was what I did.
Gear - Canon 500D & Canon 50mm 1.8

  1. Set the camera to AV/Aperature Mode and to the largest megapixels.
  2. Find the focus.
  3. Get to a close distance with the target and take at least a few shots.
  4. Slowly start moving forwards towards the target while shooting.
  5. If the end result ain't as macro as it seems, find a good picture and crop it.
  6. You will get something pretty good.

Hope you find this useful.
