Macro photography with a point and shoot

Much has been written on the topic of Macro photography for those photographers fortunate enough to own a DSLR with macro lenses – but what about if you own a compact point and shoot camera? Can you get great macro shots too?

While the results achievable with a point and shoot camera in macro mode probably won’t compare with a DSLR with a purpose built macro lens I’ve still taken some remarkably good shots with compact cameras 

Adding filters to your photos will give the macro images a twist. So why not have some fun and give it a try? Below are a few taken wjth a Nikon Coolpix.

 Start with a simple flower arrangement, select macro mode, then just point and shoot!
