When taking a photo, sometimes we find ourselves harnessing our camera’s zoom feature to capture certain special things in as much detail as possible. The unique textures and colors that desserts possess are one such example; when capturing a particularly impressive cake or sweet treat, harnessing our smartphone camera’s zoom comes in handy when looking to record it in all its glory.
The Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71’s powerful quad camera features a 5MP Macro camera that, compared to a normal camera lens, can capture a subject and all its intricate detailing at a 30 to 50 mm range. To see this revolutionary close-up technology in action, Samsung Newsroom used the Galaxy A51’s Macro lens to take the best shots of 12 different appetizing desserts. What new worlds of detailing will the Macro lens uncover?
Getting Up Close and Personal with Surface Details
One of the benefits of a camera such as the Macro lens on the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 is its ability to capture details that human eyes aren’t capable of perceiving. Not only does the Macro lens record all of an object’s surface detailing, it is able to focus on a subject automatically without any need for the user to manually adjust the settings.

Top Tips: How to Become an Expert Food Photographer
① Be aware of lighting!
In order to take a good close-up picture of food, you need to be aware of your light source. For general portrait-orientation photography, one is advised to avoid any kind of backlight from behind a subject. But food photography is different because it is about adding three-dimensionality to two-dimensional details. If you can use backlighting well, you can harness light effects to showcase the dynamism of your subject, such as its glittering moisture or its vivid colors.

Bringing Out Every Texture
The different textures of a dessert don’t just make it enjoyable to eat – they make a sweet treat enjoyable to photograph, too. Once you have ascertained the most compelling textural aspects of your dessert when snapping a picture, you can use the Macro lens to bring out these multifaceted details.
