Macro Photography and Close-Up Photography involves getting really close to an object, often only a few inches away, and shooting with a Minolta AF 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens or a Minolta AF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. You will soon discover, Macro Photography and Close-Up Photography isn’t very easy to get in focus, but adding Extra Light is the key to getting a wider Depth of Field at a Smaller Aperture (More Subject In Focus).
Macro Photography is Meta’s favorite type of Digital Photography, because it’s everywhere around you, but often passed by and overlooked.
Shooting RAW at 10 to 12 Shots Per Second in High Speed Burst Mode can quickly fill up Smaller SD Cards, which is why Meta uses Faster and Larger SanDisk Extreme Pro SD Cards
