As I continue to travel through the paths of the fascinating field of photography, I’m discovering new areas I wish to explore more. Some of these areas of interest are: street photography, macro photography, seascape photography, landscape photography and portraitures. As you can see, photography is never-ending universe in itself.
Lately I’ve read about the different techniques of macro photography. Capturing creatures or objects so small that you can barely see them with your naked eye is something I definitely would like to dip my toes into. As a matter of fact, I’m ordering from Amazon today several photography accessories to enhance my macro shots:
- Neewer 48 macro LED ring flash light
- Vivitar 52mm close up macro filters (+1, +2, +4, and +10)
These items will help me out to shoot better macro pictures without spending a bundle. When the time is ripe, I’ll probably go for the real thing: a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro USM lens which can be had for about $599.00. But that will take a while. For the time being, the mentioned accessories will do just fine.
Below are a couple of shots of lilliputian white and yellow flowers discovered in our back yard. The macro pictures were taken with a DSLR Canon EOS Rebel T2i and a “nifty-fifty” lens (e.g., EF 50mm f/1.8 II). It was a very bright day with lots of light, so I installed a Hoya polarizing filter to avoid blowing out the shots. Take a look at the cute miniscule flowers. This is what I plan to do more in the future when my order arrives.
