Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures for her Macro Party. Macro is a setting on your camera (look for the flower) used for up close and personal photography. I am no expert but do love playing with my new camera. The best macro shots are going to be outside in natural light. I didn't have that luxury tonight but was not going to let that stop me. I used my standard flash and Picnik editing software. I cropped the image to remove some of the shadows in the picture from the flash. The standard camera flash will always bounce off of just one area of your picture. It usually overexposes that area and leaves shadows elsewhere. I also sharpened the image in Picnik to show the detail in this photo. Wondering what the heck this is?
