Some of the most interesting examples of macro photography are shots of everyday objects such as a hairbrush, an item of food, or an object in nature such as ice, snow, feathers, flowers, insects, or pets. The beauty of macro photography is its ability to turn the familiar into the extraordinary.
Tips for Shooting Macro with iPhone 13 Pro:
- Make sure to get close to what you want to photograph, as you can get as close as 2cm.
- Keep the primary focus point close to the center of the frame, which is where the focus is most obvious when using macro photography on the iPhone.
- Tap an area in the field of view to select a specific focus point.
- Shoot at 5x to capture the wide field of view of the Ultra Wide camera, or try shooting at 1x for a closer framing option, and the iPhone will automatically switch cameras when you get close while maintaining the 1x framing option.
