So let's start by just getting in nice and close,…maybe I'll zoom in a little bit.…Fill the frame with that, and…I like it.…We're on to something here.…But maybe we can get even closer,…even without a macro lens,…if I want to see how close my camera and lens will get,…the best way to do that is to go into manual mode…
