If you've watched all of this course, you should now have a solid grounding in the foundations of macro shooting. But, just as gazing into the fine details of a small subject reveals a world of deeper photographic possibility, so can your macro study now go much farther. From here, you will want to work towards a deeper understanding of macro lighting, natural lighting, light modifiers, strobes, continuous lights. You'll also want to build up a skill set of specialized macro shooting practices. Insects, flowers, tiny animals, and macro product photography all require specialized techniques and skills that build on the foundations that you've seen here.
But, as with all forms of photography, the most important thing you can do right now is practice, not just to develop the necessary skills required for macro shooting, but to train your eye to recognize macro potential, and to better understand how to use the macro visual vocabulary to build up an image. Because macro photographs can be found anywhere, there is never a reason that you can't do a little macro practice. So, turn your eyes to the smaller details of your environment, and have fun.
