Here are some tips for getting really close. Magnifying power. Don't settle for a close-up lens that is anything less than a true macro, meaning one that will magnify your subject 1 1 or life-size.

Consider Monochrome

Drain a scene of color to bring out character monochrome can transform it in unexpected and often satisfying ways. It tends to lift the subject out of a specific time and place, distilling and abstracting its visual qualities. Monochrome can be black-and-white, sepia-toned, a blue cyanotype or other effect. Each will have a different impact. Another option partially desaturing a scene in software to create a cool antique quality.

The contours of the grip provide plenty of leverage to maneuver the camera as needed and textured rubber on front and back keep your fingers from slipping. Like most DSLRs of this class, it relies heavily on the LCD for controls. Press the button on the back twice and you get to an on-screen control panel that makes changing most settings fairly quick. Still, we preferred the various dedicated buttons on Canon's T3i to the D5100s...

With the strong ND16, a much wider aperture can be used. Wide apertures like F 1.4 and F 1.8 create a very shallow depth of field exquisitely isolating the...
