Guide to Macro Photography Tips and Tricks for Beginners + Macro Photography Lighting Tutorial

Guide to Macro Photography Tips and Tricks for Beginners + Macro Photography Lighting using various equipment. My 13 best macro photography nature photos tips video to get you started giving a macro photography how to guide. This video talks mostly about nature macro photography (in my garden), specifically macro photography of flowers (and shows insects, bugs, mushrooms etc). –

I detail the sort of camera equipment needed (macro photography lens, extension tubes), best tripod for macro photography as some designs are better suited than others, macro photography lighting gear (diffusers, ring lights, led light panels, reflectors and flash for macro photography). I try to share all the information I’ve learnt over the years so that this macro photography guide can get you started. The video even includes macro photography water drop photos and tips to help create these. Although my focus here is on flower photography can you transfer the same skills to use for your own home macro photography ideas. Indoor macro photography at home is particularly enjoyable when the weather outside is not suitable. Personally I enjoy taking photos of my film cameras but watches can look great too. It is such a wide genre you can literally photograph anything and make cool images!

  1. I really enjoy seeing macro, so I decided to try the Sigma 105mm macro on the CL. Also threading on a Marumi +5. It’s definitely going to take practice. Thanks for the tips.
