I was talking with a fellow 60D owner over on my Facebook
page and he had a question regarding macro photography with the Canon 60D. I thought it would be beneficial to share our conversation with all of you...Alyx's Question
: I was looking to get into macro photography and was wondering what tips you had?Moose's Answer
: To get started in macro photography you'll need a lens that's capable of focusing super close to your subject. If you don't have the budget for a dedicated lens and just want to dabble with macro shots, then I highly recommend the Raynox DCR-250
. This macro lens adapter can snap onto lenses with a filter diameter between 52mm to 67mm and will instantly give you the ability to capture microscopic detail.
In regards to settings, I would shoot in Aperture priority (Av) and select the lowest available f-number which is determined by the lens you're using. Whenever possible, disable the flash and try to position your macro subject so that it's lit evenly by natural daylight. Happy shooting! :)
