For this first post I will share my experience taking macro pictures. Two years ago when I bought a Nikon D90, I started from ground zero and my first goal was to learn as much about photography as I could.
So I’ve been learning photography by tutorials on Youtube 🙂 ; macro images have catch my attention since beginning. Why? Well, every detail that you can see by this technique are unique. Especially when you take pictures of insects, small frogs or miniature flowers like orchids.
When I got my camera, it came with 2 lenses 18-55mm and 70-300mm (the basic ones); I also got some filters, an external flash, storage cards and a close up filter.
So guess what? That close up filter became really helpful for my first photos of frogs!
Using this filter may not be the same as a macro lenses because the images are not really sharp.
However this could be an easier, cheaper option for someone who would like to practice this technique and not spend a lot of money on a macro lenses.
Here are some images that I have taken with the 18-55mm and the close up filter.
Also insects like this Hercules beetle
Where do you buy it? Amazon or Ebay can be a good option.
Check out the follow filter option for your Canon or Nikon.
Note: Make sure to choose the correct filter for your lenses size.
After you get these filters, don’t hesitate to practice, practice and practice. Take as many photos as you can!
