Macro photography I do love macro photography it does really interest me a great deal. It’s something I’ve always been interested in since I took up photography. Just looking through some of my older photos and coming across a few I would like to share with you. It’s a shame you can only upload old. The photo was taken maybe 4 years ago now.

I just bought a new lens more for macro photography, I think. Looking forward to playing with the lens sometime.

@kevin1877uk I just logged into my Best Buy account. I bought the Canon - EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Standard Lens. I am a newbie when it comes to cameras though.. even though I've had my camera for years.

THat is really pretty. I love the vintage and black and white look to photos myself. I am no photographer. I usually depend on nature (the sky) to make my photos look great and then filters within my phone to take care of the rest.

@kevin1877uk It makes me think of the past as well as all of the things we've accomplished as a people. I don't have any old tin type photos but I love those as well.

Macro photography you mean? Macro photography is close up of insects and flower, getting to see something you wouldn't normally see.

I also love macro photography, unfortunately the best camera and lenses I had for this were the old reflex camera. It's almost impossible to find the films reels now.

@kevin1877uk Yes, you can find them, but then you must find a trustful place to develop them.
