The kits that helps you capture every detail of tiny subjects
01 Macro lens
A macro lens is defined as being able to capture a subject at a 1:1 ratio. Many ‘zoom’ macro lenses only capture a at 1:2 ratio.
02 Extension tubes
Extension tubes turn a standard lens into a macro lens. You can also attach them to a macro lens to increase the magnification.
03 Close up filters
Using a close up filter is essentially like placing a magnifying glass over your lens. You may see fringing and edge softness.
04 Shutter release
Macro photography is a delicate operation, so using a remote shutter release eliminates the chance of camera shake. If you don’t have one of these, use the self timer.
05 LED Lights
LED lights are easier to control than flash and give a soft, continuous light. Most produce a cool tone, so check the white balance.
