Macro photography is producing photographs of small items larger than life size. Macro lenses can be very expensive, which is why most photographers, like myself, start out with something simpler. I bought a set of macro filters online for a decent price, and honestly I am glad I got them. Even though they are not the best macro lenses to have, these little filters have given me great close up photographs that I would have never gotten without them. The set of filters that I got have four different filters. The highest one that I have is a +10. Whenever I go out on a photo shoot I like to carry these filters with me because when I see something very small, like an insect, or small frog, I can grab them out of my pocket and get great detailed shots.
I am not only a nature/wildlife photographer, but also a portrait photographer. On occasions I photograph engagement sessions. Another reason I got these filters is because I can use them to get great detailed ring shots. I have used my own engagement ring for practice and love the shots I have captured. Macro filters can be used however you like, but these are just some of the reasons I would recommend them. If you would like to see the filter kit I got, click the button below. Also, please enjoy a collection of photographs where I have used my macro filters. Maybe now you will consider getting your own kit!
