    How to take close up pictures

    Just a photography tip for those of you trying to take pictures of things close up.

    Ever notice when trying to take pictures of things close up, they come out blurry? The cure for this is to hit the "Macro" button. This is the one that looks like a flower. Just hit this button and your close up pictures will come out looking sharp.

    No, I only have one camera so I can't take a picture of my camera.

    I knew I should have read the instructions. However since that was the only problem I really did have with taking pics I truly appreciate the input. Now I don't feel so bad wasting my time and pulling out the instructions which I hate doing.

    OK, following that logic, the one on the top, just above the lightning, is for taking pictures of timepieces.

    My cell phone doesn't have a macro button on it, and I take 90% of my pictures with it these days.
