Adam takes you through everything you need to know in this beginners guide to macro photography. He takes you through choice of macro lenses, or shows you how to create your own for nothing. There’s instruction on axial lighting patterns for the best close-up macro illumination without splashing out on a ring light. He even gives you the basic settings and explains what the different ratios mean, such as 1:1 macro lens.
If you’re an experience photographer who wants to get into serious macro photography, or a complete beginner just dabbling with some close up photography, this guide is a great place to start and with no previous knowledge necessary.
