Macro setting on my new camera

Home / Photography / Macro setting on my new camera

We had thick frost yesterday so I put my warm cardi on and headed outside with my new camera. I’ve always loved macro photography but I can’t get very good results with my iPhone.

My new Nikon Coolpix L830 is probably going to be on the macro setting more than any other after seeing the results of the photos I took of the frost!
I love it and I’m planning on taking the kids to Hartsholme Park or Whisby Nature reserve for a walk next weekend so I can get loads of photos 🙂
