Macro Lens’

If you’re looking to do Macro photography a real macro lens can be really expensive. What I found to avoid spending $500 plus on another lens is a Macro Extension Tube Set by Fotodiox for only $15. It attaches directly to the camera extending the distance your lens is from the shutter, this allows  you to get objects in focus pretty much as close as you can get your camera to the object. Here is a photo I took about 1cm away from these fake flowers, I am also using a Ring Light which is recommended when shooting macro with a tube extension because your aperture is push way up which really darkens a shoot.
