Macro is fun !

I love macro photography and I want to share my experiences with you.1 - Use a tripod.

Usually dentistry images are captured with a ring flash where a human being is in the business.But in other macros I use my flashguns and soft-boxes.3 - Be creative.... continue reading

First try of macro

Especially considering its price.I think this lens is the best one to begin with macro photography.All the best everyone! continue reading

My New 60mm/F2.8

I was willing to purchase a macro lens from many days, was unable to afford but finally I have recently purchased new macro lens which is Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USMI really love closeup & macro photography. Before purchasing this specialized lens I was using some local closeup filters with diopter +1,+2,+4 & +10.

Especially with +10 one gets very high distortion in corners, purple fringing,low... continue reading
