comment I am trying to avoid light without flash?
I'm not sure what this question is asking. Can you make it more clear what you are trying to do?

comment Why is it called “macrofocus” and not “microfocus”?
@Skaperen, I can't believe you're getting upvotes on your comment, because the OP already stated that micro does exactly that as well. so that is not at all what distinguishes the term macro, despite what I believed, before I read the question.

comment Focus specifics in Samsung s5
@dpollitt, true, distance to subject is another factor. the OP said the subject is 2m away. you might be able to introduce bokeh if you get much closer, maybe 20cm?

comment Why is 18% grey considered to be in the middle for photography?
So let's say you've determined the perfect shade of grey for your exposure card. Now the question is how much light do I let fall on it when I register it with my meter? 18%?

comment What ios app makes possible to do this 'halo' effect?
Looks like a typically HDR type of artifact. Most of the sophisticated image manip programs will do it. Its more a matter of technique.

comment How to remove fog while shooting and during post-processing?
Photoshop has a high-pass filter feature that could help to restore some of the detail. If you use GIMP, then this procedure simulates a high-pass: gimpinfo.org/tuts/high-pass-in-gimp The results can be surprisingly good.

comment How to get high contrast texture?
In Photoshop: copy the layer to a new one above, apply a high pass filter, and then select "Overlay" from the blends rollout, adjust "opacity" of that layer as desired.
