What to bring:

Note: The cost of close-up equipment scares a lot of people away from macro photography.  Fortunately, some inexpensive options do exist. Investigate close-up adapters, with a step-up ring to fit each of your lenses. They offer excellent quality and superb close-up facilities at 10% of the price of a macro lens. The normal close-up filters are not recommended, as the image quality is usually poor. Another option is to obtain a set of extension tubes. They are more expensive than the adapters, but offer better image quality.  If you would like to try your hand at Macro before you break the bank, please contact Tanya for rental possibilities ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
